Success! Against all advice, I’ve been able to get some very very young eggplant seedlings out of the confining little peat pots and into a bigger pot. They made it!
A cold, windy night hovering around a seasonal 50 degrees or so. But not too much to speak of. The tiny leaves re immune somewhat to the damage of wind and sun. They are too busy growing for me, for us, for everyone.
Hopefully this success will continue. Less touch-and-go more let’s get that growing on!
