Larger Seedlings and Hot Weather
The las two days have seen some of the larger seeds sprout: some peas and some cucumbers, as well as the carrots. Also, in the pots, (see photo), both thyme and cinnamon basil are up, and in the front of the house miniature sunflowers are poking their leaves through the soil.
After a week of near-freezing temperatures and rain we’ve been having some really hot weather here in MontrÃ©al. This has lead to some temporary dehydration of some plants. Being faced with thirty degrees Celsius only one week after temperatures of five degrees Celsius has been rather tiring and some of the flowers in the front garden as well as my marjoram plant in the vegetable garden laid down to take a rest in the heat, however a good watering got them back up. Ideally a good watering morning and evening should prevent this, but watering morning and evening is often easier said than done.
With slightly cooler temperatures and some rain in the forecast it here’s hoping that the next few days will be great and the garden will get really well established.
