Please Jack!...

(Frost that is) don't freeze my babies! My tomato and eggplant seeds have sprouted and we are making a Herculean effort to keep the plant babies alive. It won't get above freezing for the next few days. Yikes!

This year we invested in propagation mats that give bottom heat to help the little guys grow faster. The heater in one of the greenhouses gave out so...Mr. Plantfreak being the redneck engineer that he is, rolled our barbecue grill up to the house and fired it up. Works beautifully!
The people at the paying job have opted not to grow any of their own perennials this year (crazy) so we are hoping for a sell out year! This might actually be the year I can work at The Garden Sage full time. Maybe. Possibly. Got my fingers crossed.
