Seed Grow Project
Happy Easter! Halleluia!
Today is the first official GROW project posting. It’s still a bit early, here in Connecticut. The weather is warming, but we had floods early in the week with record high water levels in the area. So, I haven’t planted my nasturtiums. I did do some gardening, yesterday. I’ve got a few places to try the nasturtiums. I’ll be trying to grow them on the arbor in the middle of the veggie garden.
I also have a spot picked out for them in the paisley garden. In preparation, I’ve ‘planted’ a branch there that was pruned off the lilac bushes, last year. Yesterday, I planted sweet peas around the branch. When we’re closer to the last frost date, I’ll plant the nasturtiums with them. From what I’ve read, sweet peas are a cooler season flower and nasturtiums warmer. I’m wondering if their bloom periods will follow one another and give me a nice progression of flowers. I may even add morning glories to the mix for the summer.
I ‘planted’ another stick in the kitchen garden and one outside the veggie garden. For now, those have the sweet peas that I planted yesterday, but I may add nasturtiums. I think mid-May is the start of the warm season planting, here. My garden guru even waits until June 1st. Sometime this month, I’ll probably put a few seeds out with soda bottle greenhouse covers, just to give them a head-start and see what happens.
Until next month,
