Part 4.---This formula was from a now ended blog but has been kept alive by those who were interested in this type of stuff. Some will pooh pooh it without even researching it but I read in a post there is a very good tomato grower using BIM. So here it is for those interested.

These arrived today. One of them has lucky genes written on them. Guess I better plant those for sure.

Better day coming. It was so unseasonably warm 2 days ago but this is why the old farmers saying of do not plant before the 10th is holding up this year. Still not completely (but usually)out of frost danger here. Still June.

This is the hour by hour weather. Low of 4C (windchill of 1Cor 34F )along with light wind is not what you want.

Frost is the result. My leaves were sparkly so I washed them off with water (to be safe) when the sun was coming up and hoped for the best when I got home from work. Temperature rising before sun hit the plants was a plus so all was fine. Cool nights are not through but hopefully last of the frost.
