Crop Failure!

Last night a mighty wind blew and sent my carefully tended lettuce seedlings flying. Since I can never get lettuce to seed in this crazy Central Texas climate, I'd been starting it in a seed tray on my deck, keeping it in full sun, cool breezes, misting it twice a day to cool the soil, and even yesterday, began adding a seaweed/fish emulsion to the mist. They were very lovely seedlings, strong, tall, nice even leaves. I was planning today to transfer them to a newly built lettuce bed in my garden. Here's what they look like now.
