Not as good as it looks

The tomatoes are not freezing, not being pelted by the wind, but they are damping-off. During the potting up, I watered them in heavily, some more so than usual perhaps as they were in some immediate shock. Following then have been nothing but dreary days, no sun. Together this has combined to form a nice breeding medium for the fungus and what-not that damps things off. Some flats are better than others. I think this corresponds to the quantities of water applied. Today we pulled a few out, finding overly saturated soil. Darn it. They were looking very good and I've had nothing but good fortune related to bringing tomatoes into the world.
