Drooping

This is the first time it’s happenened:

I overwatered the tomato seedlings and one hasn’t survived. Fortunately, a new one has popped up and it is is from a packet which has lots of seeds (in comparison with the organic tomato seeds).

On the other hand, as can also be seen in the above photo, the echinacea have survived the winter, producing what seem to be strong new leaves. Perhaps they would have been okay outside but I’m glad I didn’t chance it.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

    As one usually has too many tomato plants in the end (at least, that always happens to us), one seedling less does not really matter. But pity that it was one of the organic ones.

      Actually no, it was one of the non-organic ones. I’m pleased about keeping all three organic seedlings, which are doing well, so far. Good point about generally having a surfeit of tomato plants!

    I left my echinacea outside. Not noticed any new growth yet. You may have been right to bring it in!

  3. Sorry you lost a seedling. I never have much luck with seedlings…I can’t seem to keep them alive. But I’m hopeful that I’ll figure it out and I’m trying again this year. Just with some herbs, but we’ll see.
