Must Be Careful

Just another ordinary night. You're bringing your water buckets in for tomorrow's shower. Then as you pass your home nursery you bump into a shelf and it happens...


Yeah, about had a heart attack. I had to step away for a minute and let the shock go before carefully picking up the tray and examining the situation. Luckily the carnage was minimal. All I had to do was gently pick the peat pots up one by one, lightly holding the seedlings in place while refilling the soil. One pot actually escaped, had the group of seedlings but no cup... put them in an extra one.

And my Green Babies made it through the night!


  1. Ouch, that sucks. At least they made it through the night. Crossing my fingers for you that the stems or roots didn't get damaged.

  2. I totally feel you. My mom smooshed one of my seedlings and I almost cried when I saw it. Did your seedlings recover?

  3. Thanks Fern :) They did end up all making it through the falling incident, but one called it quits last week in the heatwave :/ But hopefully the cool weather hangs around a few more days so I can get them in the ground

  4. I have about a 50% survival rate when it comes to lettuce seedlings. So I plant twice as many lettuce seeds.
