Scallions from the Cooks Garden
and a few flowers:
Scarlet Red Celosia or Cocks Comb
Tithonia or Mexican Sunflower I think
Grandpa Otts Morning Glory
a lovely little Marietta type marigold that is primarily red. Ordinarily I don't like marigolds, but I'll try them for their pest deterrance reputation.
I'm forgetting things here. I know I had a whole heaping brown bag of seeds and this isn't all of them. I need to buy a heat mat or two which they did not have at that store. I will probably order it. But I so want to get started. Yesterday is was 62 degrees here. Crazy for January. There are Daffodils coming up everywhere. My garlic that I planted last fall is also beginning to make an appearance. Woohoo!
On a sad note, last week we had our septic system cleaned (lovely) and there seems to have been a third tank which we did not know about. Unfortunately this third tank was located beneath a perennial garden that I put in the first year we were in the house. So I lost quite a few plants. I was able to save a few, but several Shasta Daisies and Rose Campion and Penstemon were gonners. That sucked. But it explains why things never grew really well right in the center of that bed (where the manhole is a little over a foot under the soil) and I won't spend a bunch of money on hollyhocks to put in ther center and wonder why they are dead by July like I have for the past three years. Oh well, live and learn.
