Having tomato plants to check on every morning really makes it feel like summer. It's been HOT and dry here upper 80's but today is supposed to be cloudy and then hopefully a few days of rain.
There was a moment when all the seedlings were really looking zapped but they seem to be getting their garden feet.

Only thing to do is get some straw and patiently wait for all the seeds to germinate!
