I really hate to go to bed with healthy plants and wake up to this…
Not really sure what the problem is. I don’t really think they needed to be repotted because they didn’t have much for root systems yet. I have several guesses. 1)they aren’t getting enough light. 2) some are not getting enough water and some are getting too much. 3) there is some stupid gnat flying around and I wonder (after reading Momma_s’s blog) if it is causing fungus problems.
I really don’t know for sure, so I went ahead and repotted all the healthy plants or ones that looked like they might have a chance, and threw out the pitiful ones! Like I said, as I dug some out of the cell packs, they were wet on top, but not on the bottom. Others were growing mold on top.
I also hung my 4 foot shop light along the side of my indoor greenhouse, and took the cover off one of the ones inside just to get more light out of it.
I watered them all really well, and now, I just gotta hope they make it! It is funny how healthy some of them look and how pitiful some of them look. It is very frustrating!
I really have wanted to get outside and in the garden this week, but it has been raining for days. Rain. It can be such a blessing for gardeners some days, and such a hindrance others. You need it for your garden to grow, yet you can’t work in it, and you can’t work in the mud, and then if it rains too hard, all your hard hard work gets washed away or pelted. Some plants you might get blossom end rot, or it helps fungus to grow out of control. So, yes, I am ready for a few nice days to get out in the garden and finish planting flowers, mulching, and plant a few more things in the vegetable garden. I also would like to get my seedlings out for some hardening off. I have got them out a couple of times, but the storms would not have been nice to my tender little seedlings.
I also have found that my sweet baby boy likes the grass!
In this picture, he fell right to sleep. Another day, I was out working in my flower beds and I had him in the stroller but he did not like that at all. So, I put a towel down and layed him down. He went right for the grass. Rolling over to it, feeling it, pulling it. I think he likes it! Sweet!
