weather and seedlings

kellylee | Mar 24, 2011 06:29 AM

I optimistically began my garden from seed back in late February. Most everything germinated and I have a wonderful array of seedlings at play. However, they seem to have stopped growing. They look perfect, no wilting or curling. My question is this: with our rainy, blustery Nor Cal weather of late, are the plants "on hold" or are they permanently stunted? When the weather shifts back toward mild would it be a good idea to start over? The radishes are supposed to be 28 days to harvest. They sprouted on Feb. 12 and I pulled one up yesterday, Mar. 23, and it was the size of a marble. A very tasty little marble but certainly not ready for prime time. Likewise the leaf lettuce. It sprouted on Feb. 15 and is due to be harvested in 21-35 days but it is only about 4 inches tall. Am I missing something?
