Garden Update 5.12.2018 – DISASTER

Well, the cold frames worked well. TOO well. A sudden heat wave last week (a few days in the 80s out of no where) and I forgot to take the tops off on a particularly sunny day. All the seedlings are fried (well, 90%, a few might be able to be saved).

Fortunately, May Market was yesterday and today at Phipps. I was able to find Garden Dreams, who stocks most of the same varieties I was planning on growing, and pick up some tomatoes and peppers to make up for what was struck the hardest.

Pretty upsetting given that I was trying to start seeds for two others, had invested in a better setup than any year prior, and yet have the worst results of any year. Shows what a delicate balance this whole thing can be!
