Manic Monday: Plant
I was too lazy to take a picture of my seed packets but that is the same picture that is on the packets. I went to the Burpee web site and found it there. They are nasturtiums. I spent $2.00 on two packets and that is my gardening budget this year.
When I first moved here I tried to grow vegetables and had some mixed success. Lettuce does really well but the vegetables of my childhood do not. These flowers though, are perfect here. They like my regrettable soil and they don't mind some neglect. I would like to think that I could bloom so well my whole season when planted in poor conditions. At least I would like to not grow bitter like lettuce does long before the growing season ends.
