All this time my sunflowers have been in peat pots waiting for soil. Yesterday, although Moon is full, I put some of them into two different garden beds. Wolf is going to put the rest on the side of the house.
I know it’s very late in planting them and they probably won’t flower, but I couldn’t just kill them (instead, I just never let them grow. Isn’t that worse?). Some are in with the tomatoes and cucumbers, and one or two are in with the pole beans. The rest will go on the driveway side of the trailer because it gets the most Sun.
Full moon was last night and just about everything has flowered. The squash bed is filled with big yellow flowers; hopefully we’ll be awash in squash (look at that: a poet and I didn’t even know it!) and the tomatoes have flowered also. We’ll have more pickling cucumbers than God himself, and the peas are coming in quite nicely too (and yummy!). The beans, peppers, potatoes, cabbage, spinach, turnips, onion, garlic, pumpkin and spegitti squash are all coming in nicely.
It’s amazing what good soil will bring., hu?
