Color has improved a lot. Its pushing secondaries out which is good sign. Plant was nearly dead about five days ago.

Some of the issues I had with the early start was a severe phosphorous deficiency. I think nitrogen and maybe calcium uptake went to zero also when the roots got too cold.

The roots may have been attacked by unfriendly "wet-weather soil biology" in addition to being too cold.

But I'm curious to try an equally early start next year and see if I can use more bio-available fertilizers like fish or prep the ground better and control the temps better.
