As noted in my last post, Pete and I headed back to Boston to care for our seedlings. We figured two weeks was enough time to start transplanting into larger soil blocks. This wasn't so much a hunch on our part, but through Facetime with my plants -- technology can be a wonderful thing.
Here is me contemplating the work ahead of us. Just kidding. More like me drinking coffee while Pete snapped away.

In my short experience, seeds want to grow and grow fast. But some seeds can be completely temperamental, such as the sweet peas not liking super moist conditions and thereby got moldy. Alas, must re-start the sweet peas by sowing directly into the raised beds.
