Whole tray of seedlings died

I had oral work done a few days ago and put my tray (72 cell) of cole crops out before I left because it was warm and I was hardening them off.
I was out of it and forgot them until 3am and it got so cold and killed the whole tray.
Do I have time to restart them? I'm so mad they were the best cole crop seedlings I've had in years.
That's how it goes it's always something every time I start seeds.
thank's all Tree

Gotta love the ups and downs of gardening!
If this spring is anything like last year, I would say you have plenty of time to start over.

RE: Whole tray of seedlings died

I agree, Tree. Go for it. I had a great looking start myself...then got busy and forgot to water them. Lost a couple each of brocs, cabbage and cauliflower...but I replanted yesterday and the seeds have already broken open.

We may not be able to harden these types of crops off until late March at this rate, maybe early April!

RE: Whole tray of seedlings died

Couple of years ago I did this, in mid April, with ALL of my tomato transplants. I think that was in 2008. A little while later I went to the Spring Fling and came home with a whole lot of tomato transplants.

Tahlequah, OK

Plant something else to take your mine off the lost babies.

I'm sorry about your seeds, but how's your mouth?! Dental work is THE worst!
