    Default Stupid mistake of the week(month)

    So. Muck lover had a physio appointment yesterday. I was so positive and cheerful after seeing the nice physio i thought i would just nip into homebase. Of course i had to buy something. A nice wee tray of psb seedlings.
    Popped the little tray onto the floor of car passanger side and drove home.
    I had the car heater on all the way home warming my feet.
    You have probably guessed how dead and cooked my seedlings were by the time i got home.
    So embarrassingly mind blowingly monumentally stupid. I deserve to be kicked off the forum.

    I've lost count of the stupid things I've done over the years - not much anyone can say by way of help - all we can do is soldier on and try not to make the same mistakes again - cold consolation I'm afraid.

    Remind me to post all the graphic details of my Great Blueberry Scandal some time.
    It’s not a pretty tale.

    Could you serve them up with dinner and called them "car roasted baby PSB".
    I bet if that was on the menu of an upmarket restaurant they would say "How Divine" and send their compliments to the chef.

    Obviously I've never done anything stupid.

    Are you quite sure they're dead?

    I have salvaged a few. I left them overnight to see if they would recover and it was pretty clear this morning which ones were irretreviably dead. Utterly dead.
    I potted the few live seedlings up and hope they can rise above their poor start in life!
