Triple surprise this morning. The cineraria,polyanthus and viola is blooming after I had recently posted about waiting for them to bloom. Wonderful to see them blooming side by side. Extra bonus with the French marigold as they self-seed by itself on that spot like a final touch up to make it look like a flower fest. We don’t have to sow any French marigold seeds anymore because this is their hot spot where they self-seed readily. Sometimes French marigold seedling become invasive, we scoop the seedlings and transfer them to other patch. Minus work on sowing seed and this flower plant is good to keep nematodes away! In addition to that save money on seed potting mix.
A Nice surprise too this month is many viola seedlings are found in the veggie patch. I did not expect violas I planted last year will self-seed so easily.
One of the spot viola seedlings are getting crowded under our chili plant. I have to transfer some of them later to a different place or pot up some for community fruit and veggie next month.
Transplanted some of viola seedlings in this wood box at the edge where pink radish seed has just germinated,growing carrots (just notice I have to thinned them) and waiting for brown onion seeds to germinate. It will be fun to see in a month or two how they are growing together in this box.
A smiling purple face with a yellow lipstick greet us this morning. Something has been busy making holes in this new viola petals. We found not only self-seeds flowers in the patch but self-seed tomatoes too!!! Do you think I should have a go with this seedling? Will they give me good harvest? The leek will be annoyed with me if I don’t make up my mind soon about these self-seed tomatoes seedling.
