There are lots of happy plants in the green house now, and a few …  ehhhhh, not so much.  My purple majesty millet is getting pretty big, but I think it needs a little somethin’.  A lot of its leaves are pretty pale looking.  I gave one tray a quart of diluted fish emulsion for a perker-upper to see what happens.  Jeeze, is that nasty-looking stuff.  I had a septic tank pumped out once and the resemblance is strong.

I’m also having an issue with my digitalis.  Some of the seedlings are scrawny and struggling, with pale leaves and green veins.  I sought some help with this and my problem may be (1) It’s too hot for them in the greenhouse (2) They are lacking iron (3) I’ve kept them too waterlogged and the little beggars are drowning (4) Some combo of one through three, or (5) Something else.  I gave them a shot of iron, and am trying to keep them cooler and dryer.  So far most of them still look like little sad sacks, though one is quite big and healthy-looking.  Odd, huh?

How nice that it is good and truly spring now in the north country.
