They've started blooming!
This is a tub that I threw the last of a packet of Siamese Dragon Stir Fry Vegetables that I got from Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds several years ago. I don't see these in their paper catalog anymore, but they are still online. These seeds were probably 3 years old, but it looks like I got almost 100% germination. I'm not going to thin these out, just going to let them go and see what I get. This is a mix of mizuna, some kales, various choys, mustards, cabbages, and tatsoi. I have no idea which is which...which should be interesting when I harvest some of it????
I spent some time pruning the tomato plants again -- they were getting too leafy. I read recently somewhere that you shouldn't let their leaves touch the ground so as to prevent diseases from getting up the plant, especially when they are damp, so I took care of that.
I didn't last too long out there today, the dampness from the rain has drawn in all of the little "no see 'ems" and I couldn't stand it! Flying, biting bugs....yuck!
The hedges in front of our house are COVERED in blooms right now, and that means butterflies...lots and lots of butterflies. I couldn't get over how many where on these plants when I came in.
Covered in butterflies!
