Just a quick update to share that I have taken my red plastic OFF the little tiny seedlings. It appears that they are strong enough that they don’t need any sheltering right now, and because they were so small and low to the ground the “greenhouse” may have actually been shading the plants too much. The seedlings that weren’t sheltered appeared to actually be growing faster than the ones in plastic, and have withstood the crazy winds and rain just fine so far.
If only we would get some heat! I have a feeling we’re in for another late tomato season like last year (June was similarly cool in 2019), so the red plastic greenhouse effect should come in handy in the later months of the summer when I want less growing and more ripening.
