Disaster struck today-

Richland, WA(Zone 7b)

It was a beautiful sunny day, so before leaving to have a root canal at the dentist, I put most of my baby seedlings out inside my portable greenouuse, with the plastic zipped up. 2 hours later as I turned into the driveway, I see the greenhouse blown over on it's side, and all my seedlings scattered inside- I am heart broken! The wind had come up unexpectedly while I was gone- no warning at all. After living here 2 years, I should have known to tie the greenhouse down! I just spent the afternoon replanting all of them- one of them, Indiana Red, given to me by a generous DG'r, I didn't have any more seeds, so I will not get to try that one! On top of that, a dear friend had a medical procedure today and has complications- so it has NOT been a good day. I will survive, and all will be well.

All you can hope is that you got good pain killers from the dentist AND that your plants come through. I dumped two trays of plants 4 days ago and they look like they are all going to make it through OK. I hope your luck is better than mine, it seems like plants are survivors more than we think they are so keep your head up!

I had that happen to me a couple of years ago.I had the portable greenhouse loaded up with seedlings.I was trying to harden off.The wind blew it over.I ended up with a pile of plants and soil all mixed together.Lost all of my identification on the plants.Spent hours repotting.Lost a few,most survived.Alot of the plants,I had no idea what they were till they bloomed.I now use cinder blocks around all 4 corners for support.Edge

Last year I had a bunch of seed packets I was sowing in the raised beds. Well, it rained that night and all the seeds were coming out so I put them all in a bucket, and just had to sow them, even though I don't know which ones they were...some old, some new, etc, some tall...still, nothing like having sown a bunch and have them all spill out...
