Filled Out The "Koi Pond" With Our Seedlings

My wife read yesterday's blog post about getting our seedlings in ASAP, liked the idea and talked me into planting out the rest of the “koi pond” with our seedlings. So with the help of her we planted Negro Azteca, Oaxacan Jewel, Indian Stripe, Gardener's Delight, Jaune Couer de Pigeon and Mexico.

And it got cool last night, down to 38 degrees. Not good for our seedlings outside.

For whatever reason, everyone's seedlings grown from seed has been bad. The seedlings from our “seed lady” have been a complete bust. Our friends Ricardo and Liz have had no luck growing from seed this year. Ours started out fine, but when they were transferred to four inch pots, we simply did not have the room to bring in all the trays of tomato seedlings every night. So they stayed outside. We think they got both too hot and too cold too soon in their existence. We'll see how the ones in the ground do and if they flourish, we'll keep them.
