Planting Continued

 Planting continued at our house on Monday night, May 14, 2012.  Bruce planted Rhine Olympic Red Reiger Begonias & Dragonwing Red Begonias

When all else fails read the instructions.  Planting the Fragrant Moonflower will be postponed till another night.  We did get the pot ready for planting but after reading the instructions had to score each seed or soak for no more than 8 hours.  Bruce tried to score the seeds but they are really hard and he could not even nick them so we will be soaking them and planting them another night.  

 Other plantings this evening were the carrot seed tape & the lettuce seed tape into the vegetable garden.  The sunflowers were planted as well.  My favourite varieties of sunflowers are from Renee's Garden.  The varieties I get every year are Valentine, Junior & Music Box & they are all planted into containers.  The only one that is rather tall is Valentine.  We also planted Swiss Chard (Silver Beet for you Kiwis) & Edamame.  The Edamame is definitely an experiment as we have never grown it before. 

 Here are the pots we had when Bruce got them out of the garage before we started planting.  I didn't think we had enough.  I am still not sure.

 Here are the pots we have left after our planting spree.  We have sure made a dent in the above pile.
