Green onion seedlings rescue

Post  edfhinton on 3/30/2013, 6:15 pm

My plant stands are getting so crowded that it seemed easiest to take each flat of green onion seedlings out of the stand to a shelf to give a haircut. Well, I missed and dumped a flat of six cells of 5" tall seedlings on the floor. While I gently picked them up, my wife moistened some more starter mix (our Mel's Mix is arriving in a couple days) and then gently replanted the seedlings into it just a tad deeper than they were. Roots were easily 1 to 2 inches long so they are well down into the mix. So now they are moist and back under the lights. I don't know if they wll survive all flopped over as they are but I didn't want to shock them more by still giving those a haircut. If they survive I will do that in a few days.

Crossing my fingers I guess the next few days should tell.

On the flip side,we just munched on a few of the cuttings, and they were very yummy. I am counting that as my first 'harvest' from our new garden, even if the 'garden' is still just the indoor seedlings.

Onions are tough little buggers and all will be well. Very Happy
