After an unsuccessful attempt at starting age-old seeds back in January, my second attempt with new seeds was a little too successful. I ended up giving about half of my seedlings to our former neighbor for his garden. The remaining seedlings have been transplanted to pots, and this what I have now:
I've never grown onion from seed before. Given their age, I'm really surprised they germinated.
Fennel is something I'm learning to like. Even if I didn't like it, this is such a gorgeous plant I would grow it for the foliage alone. I may try bronze fennel next year.
This little guy came from the farmer's market. It really needs to be planted in the ground but I can't decide where it should go. In the future, I'm instituting a rule that I can't buy plants if I don't know where I'm going to put them!
Squash blossoms are so pretty! I know they're edible, but I'd much rather leave them on the plant to become squash.
While I still long for the day when I can have a traditional garden in the ground, I admit there are conveniences to container gardening – especially when temperatures are reaching near-record highs. Pulling weeds in 100°F temperatures isn’t a part of gardening I particularly relish. Yes, I am a wimp!
