Earlier this month,it looked like the  tomatoes, cucumber & basil were all sick..I had moved them into the greenhouse, several weeks ago. Well, it must have been too early, the nights were too cold, even with a heater.. and perhaps there wasn’t enough light…

Cucumbers are also looking good, but, almost all of the basil, is gone…somethings don’t recover from a chill..I knew I was pushing it , starting them so early!!! Luckily its not too late to seed more..
