While we have been busy juggling calf club indoor exhibits for school, the seedlings have continued to grow remarkably well in their enclousre, and have responded well to being planted up. Meanwhile, the beans and corn have been taken out of the mini greenhouse and are starting their process of hardening off in the porch. In a few days, they will be moved to the outdoors during the day; then over night, and then finally into the garden. The wind was pretty ferocious over the past few days so I have been reluctant to do it any sooner.
Along with the deli beans which are hardening off, I have also had the snake beans come up finally, along with the purple beans. I did sneak in a second sowing of the purple beans though as the first ones failed to germinate properly.
And last night, after the calf club preparation was done for the day (just not for the week), I actually got around to checking the seedlings and was confronted with an unusual seedling with no name tag. Thinking it looked like it was something from ‘Little Shop of Horrors’. It was then that I clicked. It is my Rocky Mountain Sunflowers from last year. Seymour is back.
