Or make that petals IN puddles. What a stretch of warm, sticky, and RAINY weather we’re having here in the east! And the extended forecast is for more of the same straight through this week. Ugh. I’ve had tiny herb seedlings rot at the soil level and die. Enough already!
In spite of the damp and dreary days, most everything is growing well. That’s Swiss Chard ‘Bright Lights’ in the container above, with a few co-ordinating celosia for good measure. The chard is actually starting to form its crinkled little leaves — I’ve been thinning it out and using the seedlings in salads. Yummy.
