The temperature dropped down to 39 last night. I was worried about the little seedlings, so I ran outside and brought them all inside from the spot they have been sunning from for the last few days. I won’t have this option once they go in the ground though, so I am dreading that late-season cold-snap night of having to run out there to cover them and then hoping for the best.
My peas and strawberries are blooming though, as we’ve had some nice sun in here recently. So I hope those are okay through this colder night. They both seem to be pretty hardy.
I do have to laugh at myself for how scared I feel to send all my little "babies" into the world, worrying about how they will do in the cold. On one level, they are a representation of all the hard work it took to get to this point, and they are an investment in our food. On another level, they are just so cute and I don’t want to lose them after all the love and care I poured into them!
Enjoy the pics of the pea and strawberry blossoms below.
