May 15, 2012--bloom day
Tuesday, 15 May 12 Sunny 28°C / 82°F
I’ve picked and chosen the photos. A lot of the blooming plants have stepped past their best. But I’m still happy.
Showing: Beidermeier columbine, little volunteer viola, peonies, roses, Solomon’s seal.
~Felicite Parmentier are putting out all kinds of new growth
~Jewelweed seems established
~Peonies are overblown and lush
~Roses are toppling over—need to prune
~Southern Nights Tomato is seriously outpacing the others—it’s at least 15 inches tall and flowering.
~Something keeps trying to dig up Marigold seeds
~Strawberries are winding down. I need to watch the runners.
~Spinach = fail. Wonder if it has something to do with the possible nitrogen draft from those un-decomposed sticks under the soil… Or possibly the heat.
~Lettuce is lovely. Black seeded simpson is really nice.
~Peppers are settled into their new transplant homes (both fataliis and habaneros), but not growing substantially, yet.
