Planting Annual Flowers, Brussels Sprouts, Collards, Tomatoes. 4.23.18
I harvested a bag full of hollyhock and poppy seed, and I'll scatter them around the private parking lot downstairs. A few years ago I suggested to put some flowers there and they all applauded the idea, but when I started to do something about it, all went wrong. The car and bike owners followed me and began to whine: "No flowers there because... (about fifty reasons). " So now I'll sow in secret and dream of hollyhocks attacking the stupid cars.
My list of saved seeds would be extensive. Some things just do their own thing--dill and sunflowers, for example.
I guess not, Joan, borders are rather difficult.
Spud, have you had a killing frost yet? We haven't had our first light frost; however, Sept. is when we start getting some serious frosts.
I imagine you have to cover your tender plants regularly, now.
Is that clear space on E. Gould & Garrett Way a sand quarry? I forget, is your soil sand? Oh yes! I remember now, you had a problem keeping your young seedlings moist and you brought in a lot of compost. I enjoy your photos.
Yes, I save all kinds of seeds: sunflower, phlox,Monkshood, Hollyhock from Turkey, borage, chives, Foxglove, Echinacea, forget-me-not, garlic, rhubarb, tomato. Sadly, my Greek Oregano died out that winter I was so sick. I guess that was 2013.
If anyone wants some seeds, let me know and I will send you whatever you want.
I will need your mailing address.
Chris, can you receive seeds?
The rain is finally starting here. There was 0.64 inch a few days ago, and quite a bit it forecast starting in 3 days. Not much for a lot of you, but a fair amount for this area.
Spud, I don't know how you can keep from keeping Bunny for a pet. So small and vulnerable, I wager that he will let you pet him.
"The tallest sunflower measures 9.17 m (30 ft 1 in) and was grown by Hans-Peter Schiffer (Germany) in Karst, Nordrhein Westfalen, Germany, as verified on 28 August 2014."
"Dwarf Sunflowers "Johnny's dwarf sunflower selection includes a number of different colors, sizes, and even a double-flowered variety. These sunflowers are perfect for planting in containers either singly or with other varieties, as well as in the garden where they will grow just a little taller. Compare dwarf sunflower characteristics in our Dwarf Sunflower Comparison Chart."
We have cold weather, too, and beautiful partly cloudy skies, nice big cumulus clouds. This week we are in the mid 40s and low 50s
Colors turn quickly red on the Burning Bushes.
It does look smaller than average, but it's been a long time since I've been around rabbits, so I'm not sure.
