Should have trusted my instincts

Things have been a little busy around these parts.  Between a sick dog, new plants, cookie booths, and freezing temperatures...yes, it is a little busy.  

I kept an eye on the weather report.  Wind advisory; so no bonfires.  Temps in the high 30's.  Okay, should I cover the seedlings or not?  The new plants; cover them or not?  Well, it will only get down to 38 and no freeze warnings.  I guess they will be fine.  

I should have trusted my instincts.  It got down to 28° F!  I had ice on my windshield!  Man, it was cold this morning.  

I checked the plants after work.  All the butterfly garden seedlings are looking fine.  The tomatoes look rough.  I lost the cherry tomato plant my daughter planted last fall.  Well lesson learned.  Always cover the tomato and pepper plants!

Oh well, I have more seeds.

  1. I've learned a lot of lessons the hard way when it comes to gardening. Like not bringing in all my orchids back in 2010 when we had back to back freezes. I'm still not over that loss. :-(

    At least you saved seeds and can start over. It's not too late.

    Have a great week.
