Not much got done in the way of gardening between May 23-28, so this week’s log is extending to include Memorial Day Weekend.
Saturday and Sunday nights of Memorial weekend hinted at a possible last frost, which thankfully did not come to my location. Memorial Day Monday wound up being perfect for getting seedlings into the ground: consistently overcast and a high of only 70.

Here I was thought I was being oh-so-diligent, but not allowing the water in the trays to work their way up the soil and then evaporate led to lots of green algae on the surface and many seeds sogging up and rotting in the cell, so my germination rate for many things was pretty low. Other seeds, thankfully, were forgiving.
