ok did I kill them?

Post  model a man on 2/27/2011, 4:27 pm

this morning I decided to set my jiffy green house trays on a table by a south facing window. I removed the clear plastic covers and thought the stuff that was sprouting would enjoy the sun. I went and took a drive in the model a for a few hours and when I got home the stuff that was sprouting was all bent over so I moved them away from the window and gave them a spritz of water. will these bounce back or have I commited garden murder to my plants?

Were they bent over towards the sun? If so, they are probably fine.

If it's any consolation, I'm in the process of killing a thyme plant through over watering. Embarassed

They were probably reaching for the sun, and they'll probably be just fine Smile I have a couple of herb sprouts on my table and they reach for the sun, so I turn them 1/4 turn every morning. I also misted them with a blend of green and chamomile tea (that's what we drink year-round, so I just snitched a cup from the pot).

My thyme does best when I pretty much ignore it. It looks like a patch of dead brown fuzz right now... but in a few weeks or months, that will be different! I'll try to remember to get pictures. The before/after should be good.
