Larger Seedlings and Hot Weather

It seems that all I write about these days is what’s popping up in the garden! Don’t worry, soon everything will be up and I’ll write something more productive than “Hey! Look at these seedlings!”

Cucumber Seedling

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.

Carrot Seedlings

After a week of near-freezing temperatures and rain we’ve been having some really hot weather here in Montréal. 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.

Snow Pea Seedlings

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.
