Notes from the Nursery
Tray number two is a menagerie of things: lobelia, snapdragons, and one dahlia that has grown off the charts (or at least beyond the grow light in this case). I also have a watermelon plant, two butternut squashes, and two crookneck squash plants that are descendants of the plant that taught me everything I never knew I wanted to know about squash flower pollination last summer. There are two more pepper plants over there, too, so make that a total of 16. And last but not least, there are three baby rosemary plants. I am especially excited about the rosemary, since a) it's difficult to grow from seed and I've somehow managed to grow three, and b) I get another chance to try my hand at not killing it (which, if you've followed this blog for a while, you know is no easy task for me. My track record with rosemary isn't so great).
I was thinking today that I really need to start more flower seeds. Somehow I've managed to fall behind on things already. I've been so focused on getting the edibles started. A little devotion to the flower garden is in order for the weekend.
