Waaaa. I killed everything with the frost.
I just want to vent. I am new to winter sowing and live in WI.
I started this year, for the first time, peppers and peas indoors in plastic containers. They were doing great and were an inch high. Some were even two inches high.
Then white fuzzy mold started.
I read here that putting the containers outside will kill the white fuzzy mold.
It was mild outside. Cool, but mild. Snow was melting. Puddles of water were on the sidewalks.
I set all the containers on my porch and left to run an errand.
When I came out of the store, the sun had gone down and all the sidewalks were iced up. I panicked and hurried home.
I retrieved all my plants from the porch. They looked OK.
But then they defrosted.
They are all dead except for seven or eight of the largest of the little plants.
All that work for nothing.............
:( :( :(
I am going to start over, but I am so despondent over this I don't even feel like starting everything again right now.
I just wanted to vent.
Has this happened to anyone else?
