My greenhouse seeds got frazzled alive!
I should have known and made a bigger effort to get down the plot after work during the week… Or Friday night or even Saturday… But I left it till Sunday evening. Big mistake!!!
I have just installed a weather app on my phone (i hope technology will save the day). And I’m going to make a more conscious effort to get to the plot for a water; if we get near 15/20c (tuesday….). In the summer I usually leave the door off: but it’s so up and down at the moment! I came back from the plot muttering to myself… (If I had a greenhouse / garden this wouldn’t happen… If I had kept my seedling at home like I have done on the past…if I actually took notice of the weather!)
Sadly I can’t go back in time. But I can sow more seeds! Today I packed my work bag with failed seedlings and my gardening gloves. Tonight I will be legging it out the office to catch those last rays of daylight at the plot for some re sowing.
I did water my seedlings… In the hope they might have a tiny bit of life left in them. Fingers crossed!
And it wasn’t a total disaster. The mini modules (beetroot, borage, lettuce, lucky dip seeds) suffered the worst as they just dry out so fast. Everything else was ok.
On a possitive note; I took my first leggy cucumber plants down to the greenhouse… And I left a window open!!
