I guess that they were searching for a little more than just a little early morning and late afternoon sunlight. To make a long story short, mine are suffering from the shock of the "cold/hot cruel world". I will build a small hot house for next years .
We had snow last Wed. here again so plants are inside but they are growing.
The ones under plastic are peppers and only about 5 micro leaves so far. But the tomatoes are starting....

It may get to 60f today so I will take them out for some real air.

Gulf, if you want your plants to stay strong have an ossolating fan blow on them from a distance the will get stronger stems.

I agree, but they will also need much more light than I gave them this year. They were having to reach for it. I think that is what made them so tall and gangly. But, a combination the fan, the natural sun light, + the warmth (hot house) should do the trick .

Russell,
I am looking forward to the copper cladding. I have a 10' break for aluminum, and I get to play on my brother's metal roofing break from time to time. So, I am watching with great interest.

Our growing season is well under way. It is already hot down here, so the maters have really taken off. I have a few that should ripen in the next couple of weeks. I have several plants set out in various ways. Here are two that I am training to grow inside concrete reinforcement wire. Hopefully, without having to tie them up .

By the time I am done with the copper cladding I will be able to rip telephone books in half.
Russell,
They are not measly, it is just the difference in the growing seasons. You can't fight mother nature. When yours are producing great, I will be fighting mid season blights .

What kind of snips are you using? The type that you are using may be the difference between easy cutting and carpal tunnel .

No pics, I got home late. But I did check, and I've got a few baby tomatoes a bunch of blossoms. I think gulf had his in the ground a couple weeks ahead of me...not sure. It started getting hot here this week and we got a nice soak yesterday and today, after weeks of no rain.
