Somebody tried to kill my plants

Had my seedlings outside for a couple hours checked on them and they were uprooted and plucked the cotyledons. I re-potted some of them but am not sure how they will do.

Birds would be my guess as they love to do this but I have no idea what is "up and about" in your neck of the woods this time of year.

But I have to add that no way were those young seedlings near ready to be exposed to the outside yet.

Hopefully the repotted ones will recover but I'd sure plant more as the odds are against them recovering.

Good luck.

What part of AK are you in? I grew up in Wasilla, I might be able to shed some light on what did this lol

Where is this container located?

RE: Somebody tried to kill my plants

I live in Russian Mission. It was outside in the sun light and the temperature was 50 out of the sun light according to the thermometer. Will not be putting them outside till they are bigger. Have them on windows sills now. The true leaves are growing on some of them and are getting bigger.
