Totally nerve wracking day here in the Sacramento Valley. Forcated 30 MPH North winds (these winds will suck the life out of everything, including us!) High in the 90s....but the plants are SO leggy! We we went for it.
Planted 2 in each site: The West side: 1856 Mathison & 1921 Frias, East side: 1082 Carlson & 1829 Urena. These are the largest, healthiest plants of the 6, surprisingly the 2 largest seeds (the Frias 2017 and the Hawkley 1727) were not planted, these plants are in the bull pen should something horrible happen in the garden....
Each planting site has a mini hoop house, but that in itself was a worry, as it's hot. Really hot. Plants were a bit wilty at 4pm, but I turned the drip on for a half hour, and they looked better at 6pm. Whew!
