I went to the greenhouse to check on my little ones, and was sad to find a few of them had perished!
According to package directions, the seedlings shouldn't be moved from the propagation trays until they have "two sets" of leaves. These only have one, but they've gotten so tall, they've begun to fall over, and the stems are breaking. I repotted half, and left half in the trays in an attempt to see which do better.
This is my first year to grow tomatoes from seed. If anyone has any suggestions, I'm all ears! I don't want to lose any more!

Picture? Mine definitely don't get tall enough to actually fall over when they only have the first set of leaves. Can you just add a little soil to them to keep them up until they do have those second leaves??

I'll go get some pictures - I don't think there is enough room to add soil.

When I did attempt to start seeds indoors they got real lanky or long. I think the problem was my light source was not close enough to the seed tray. Hope you find out how to save your seedlings.

I think that's the problem, too. Not enough light.
