Fenton Friday: Seedlings Emerge!

Pea seedlings

Radish seedlings

This week was a crazy one at the Fenton Community Garden plot. We hit record high temps for early April in the Mid-Atlantic -- in the low 90s for three days in a row. That helped warm up the soils a bit. The really bad part was for the whole week we had ZERO rainfall and constant winds. I watered my emerging seedlings daily, but it felt like throwing pebbles at a T-Rex (futile). The ground became almost rock hard. Thankfully, last night the rains finally came and all is well again.
