At least that’s what I was told when I was little. As  a consolation for a rainy day in April, we would have bright blooms in May. This week in Chicagoland we had warm sun one day and an ice storm the next. I did not pay as close attention as I usually do to the weather and some herbs pots, seedlings, and pansies were beat hard by the hail. Ice Chunks in April!!!

  2. Oh no! That’s awful! A little closer to the city we didn’t get hail, but all this dreary grey weather is making me worried my seedlings aren’t getting enough sunlight.

    1. Well take heart because the sun is on it’s way. A south facing window will perk your seedlings right up AND
      Good News – my pansies survived and are looking perky. I’m putting them in a proper home today. As for the seedlings, I made the mistake of trying to tip the pot to dump out the ice balls. The dirt followed the balls. As for the rest of the seedling pots I gingerly picked out the little balls of ice and put the pots on my dryer. So far so good. Good luck with your seedlings and your garden 🙂
