Nothing quite gives you one of those lumps in your throat like the ominous crash followed by your little ones shouts for help….
In an attempt to help me by checking on the seedlings we have on the window sill our 3 year old unfortunately managed to tip everything, and I mean everything off the shelf.
nothing quite prepares you for seeing one small child surrounded by the limp body’s of a hundred seedlings and their peat pockets stroon all over the floor.
To say I was guttered was an understatement as this seedling disaster contained the chillis and sweet peppers that I wanted to get going early to get the best crop possible.
The worst part was that all of the labels came out during the incident so I literally have no idea what is remaining other than I can distinguish between the tomato plants and the chilli plants. so I’ve roughly got a 100 mystery plants.
I didn’t get any pictures of the chaos caused when it happened as trying to stay calm was more important at the time. but one I managed to sort out the seedlings that could be saved I did manage to get a picture of them looking a bit worse for wear.
I suppose I need to take stock of the situation and make a decision on what and how many seeds to resow to recover from this seedling disaster.
I hope your seedlings are fairing better than mine.
On another note both my twitter and Instagram accounts are now live and ill be sharing bits that tie to the blogs but also that may not be worth doing a full blog post on, I’d appreciate it if you could them out and give them a like and subscribe if you feel like they are worth it.
All the best
