Klutziness runs in the family
Medium boy accidently knocked over a tray of seedlings.
Innocently enough, he was scooting (still not walking) around the deck
while I was preparing to bring seedlings inside for the evening
He opened the screen door...
effectively knocking the entire tray of cherry tomato seedlings onto the ground...
which broke them into pieces.
I do have one of each type in an earthbox already
However, I do not have any left to share with friends,
friends I already told were all getting some
that makes me feel great
it already looked like I was destroying all the other tomato plants
the Bloesser Pinks
need I go on
I have a lot to learn about
"Hardening off" seedings
Rule # 1 : NO WIND
Rule # 2 : NO WIND
Rule # 3 : GRADUAL ACCLIMATION TO SUNLIGHT
like 1/2 hour increments daily for a week
then move up to an hour daily
those cherry tomatoes were my saving grace of the tomato plants
Well... in other tomato news
(even as puny as they are)
have put out some lovely new green leaves
see... there is always HOPE!
and remember that fabulous looking Doux?
nope, apparently it was S-L-O-W to show it's sunburn
It will be okay, but still.
I'm going to enjoy my glass of wine now
and worry about all those plants in my kitchen L-A-T-E-R
