Houston! We have liftoff, I mean germination and a Happy 4th of July!
Happy 4th of July everyone! It's a hot one here and extremely dry so I pray there are no fires started by fireworks. I was invited to go out on the lake tonight and join the "flotilla" but it is way too hot for me and I don't go in the water so I'll be staying home in my nice ac! LOL! Plus, my son is coming Sunday and I need to get the guest room prepared for him. It tends to become a "catchall" when I have no company for awhile.
You're not going to believe this but my seeds that I JUST planted what...3-4 days ago? They're sprouting!!!! LOOK!
These are lettuce sprouts and below radishes sprouting..........
They're a little hard to see and there's not as many of these yet but I am amazed! Last year I bought Burpee seeds and the germination was less than 50% on 2011 seeds! This year I bought Seeds of Change Organic seeds at Walmart and they were less expensive than Burpee and the germination rate was fast and full-blown! I am REALLY impressed!
My flowers are putting up a good fight in this heat but no matter how wet they are the heat still seems to zap all of us! Remember my full of blooms petunias on Memorial Day.....now look.....few blooms and they've all gone to seed it looks like. Oh, well....it's too hot to be out there enjoying any blooms anyway. Maybe they'll make a comeback in October when it cools off? LOL!
Have a wonderful 4th of July and stay safe and stay cool! Happy Birthday America!
