Sometimes even when you know how to do something…even when you have already done it correctly in the past, you can get lazy.
- Last year some time towards the end of seedling season my oscillating fan quit working. I tried fixing it in the fall, but was unsuccessful.
- I knew (know) how important it is to have a fan blowing over indoor seedlings to increase the strength of their stems so that they will have the strength to stand up to mother nature when they are moved outdoors.
- I ignored my past success in this area and neglected to provide a fan to my seedlings this year until tonight.
- The seedlings are not only VERY FLOPPY but they are also poorly rooted because without a fan providing some evaporation they sat in wet soil much longer than they should have.
I can only hope that adding a fan now will not be too late. Poor tomatoes!
