Dead seedlings

Good Grief, I am going to complain a bit before I start. I just had an entire paragraph disappear because the palm of my hand hit the built in mouse on this lap top. I think it is time for a different computer. So, I will try to remember what I wrote, which is never the easiest thing for me to do.

I feel a bit like the time I killed the calla lily that our family received at my mother’s funeral. It was so pretty, and it grew and grew, and one day it was limp and dying and I couldn’t do anything to save it. Today when I looked at the tomato plants in the seedling flat, it was nearly the same story. There were about half of the giant beefsteak looking like a piece of yarn that had been shredded by a flock of birds. It is a good thing that I purchase packets that have lots of seeds. At any rate, I pretty much know what I am doing tomorrow.

The Roma plants on the left are fine, but half the Giant Beefsteak on the right are fried.

The Heirloom Beefsteak will be ok, too. To the right of them, the peppers are starting to sprout.

    What a shame. Hopefully the new plants will fill in the gaps, which I’m sure they will. I’ve planted far more plants than I could ever use in hopes that just enough of them will make it to planting outside in May. If I have any leftover I’ll give them to my neighbors.

    My peppers have started to pop up too.

    It is why seed growing can be frustrating. I like your humorous description of yarn like plants.

    The same thing happens with my laptop. Or everything becomes miniscule, etc. Grrr!

    I sympathise with the loss of the seedlings. That is just how it goes with gardening, don’t you think? At least you have some others, and maybe planting more of the ones that died, they will catch up. It’s amazing how that can happen too.
