Seed starting and the working girl
No not THAT kind of working girl!
Here's my dilemma- you all may or may not recall that last spring was the first year I had a seed starting set up that worked out pretty well. Good germination rates and plenty of plants for the garden and giveaways.
Life changes, I got a new job (a good thing), with long hours M-F (not such a good thing). So as I sit here perusing the seed catalogs I have to wonder, how in the heck am I going to be able to harden anything off when I get to that point?
The other beings around here probably won't be much help. The dogs don't have opposable thumbs to open the doors and the wood dude doesn't remember to eat most days - unlikely he'll notice if a plant is frying.
I direct sow as much as I can which works for some things, but won't work for everything. I've looked into winter sowing, but I think I'd run into the same problem - a freak warm day and everything would be cooked if I wasn't around to either move the container or vent the top.
Does anyone start seeds that doesn't work from home or have enough control over your schedule to get home when you need to move things in? Or do you know anyone that does?
I'll probably give it a shot and just accept up front that I'm going to lose a lot more plants during the transition, but if anyone has any thoughts, tips, suggestions please let me know.
