Last Saturday we set our little garden seedlings outside to enjoy a bright, sunny day. We've been doing that when the days are warm and sunny enough. We bring them in again before nightfall and set them under a grow light, which we switch off before turning in for the night.
On Saturday, however, after returning home late in the evening from a wedding reception and then mixing egg dye and coloring eggs until almost midnight, we completely forgot about our little seedlings.
Easter morning greeted us with bright sunshine, a hard frost, and a tray full of dead seedlings. All gone, except for some evening primrose and one hyssop plant.
So I spent some time today re-seeding the little pop-up pots. At least they'll have a few short weeks head start. We won't be able to plant outdoors here for a little while yet.
So much for planning ahead. At least we gave organized thinking a try : )
