We survived, sorta
Just went to check all my little plants, and they all look pretty good with the exception of one plant - the Fooled You Jalapeno. I forgot to cover it last night. yikes!! As I was rousing from my nightly slumber this morning it hit me like a ton of bricks that I didn't cover it up. It is in the same box as my cold hardy plants - lettuce, broccoli, and carrots, so I didn't cover that box up. I did put a cover on my little okra plants that are in that box, but I was going to make a second trip out with a large pitcher to put over the jalepeno. I got busy covering up my tomato plants (which look very perky this a.m.) and other boxes, and when I perused my garden afterwards I failed to notice my little naked pepper plant. I tried pouring some warm water on the plant this a.m. to defrost it, but I think it looked even more miserable after that... sigh.... Guess I'll be making another trip back to the nursery this week.
Welcome to my online gardening journal. This is my first year for a square foot garden, so I have much to learn. I'm hoping that my journal will prove to be an educational endeavor that will help me with my future gardening efforts.
