Do I plant or don't I?

Post  ksbmom on 8/23/2012, 10:48 am

So I have a dilemma. I have some beautiful tomato, green pepper and tomatillo seedlings ready to go into the garden (they're out on the patio hardening off right now). I've never had such healthy looking starts! BUT....I am in central Florida and there is a tropical storm out there named Isaac. Shocked I'm afraid that if I plant them now, we might get some big storms and my little beauties will be ruined. On the other hand, they are outgrowing their containers now and need to go in the ground. On the other other hand, we'll be out of town next weekend and won't be able to do anything until the week after Labor Day! So should I wait until early September and hope they survive in their current containers or plant them now and hope Isaac makes a turn somewhere? Or do I pot them all into bigger containers (which I'd have to go buy)? Any advice would be much appreciated! Smile

Is the garden area prone to flooding? If not I would put them in. At least you wont have to worry about watering them. okay

There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau

No, we're not in a flood zone. In fact, the gardens are at the top of the slope that goes down to the pond. And the weather for the next few days looks pretty good, so maybe I'll go ahead and plant them. With all the rain we've had, I haven't watered the beds in weeks!
