If I read between the lines here.. I may indeed not be a bad idea. I had not thought of rain pouring down on the seedlings. I would think a net covering, lifted above would help. I want sun warmth, yet not rains strengthen as of yet. Thank you for that thought! I think I can work that out.
It's the whole germinate indoors, grow and season the plants to survive outside I question... Yes, you get a larger plant, further along, yet.. Is it worth that effort? I'm soaking some 'seed pods' now and will start them/greminate them indoors. They will get moved once I see a few leaves to outdoors.
This is April 20th in New Hampshire. Let's see what happens.
