Making an appearance (straw bale gardening update)

The radish, zucchini, pumpkin, watermelon, and bean seeds are sprouting! The radishes popped through first at only 3 days after planting and every day since then we've seen new growth from something or another.

I did a quick Internet search on Saturday when I noticed my tomato plant leaves were becoming increasingly white. Sure enough, my tender plants were getting wind and sun burned. It makes sense seeing that we've had a gale force wind since the day they were planted. I found every bucket I could and covered the plants for the rest of the weekend. This week it's been too hot (93 yesterday and 95 today with gusts up to 50 mph) that I can't cover them or they'll cook.

I think I was able to save three of them for sure. Jury's still out on the other one.

Grow plants, Grow!!!!

95?!?! Wow! It's only around 70 here in the Sunny or rather Soggy South!

Hope your plants are doing alright! We are so going to do this next year :)

You weren't kidding when you said you had buckets of all shapes and sizes covering your plants! What a sight!
