More Seed Starting

Today was one of the windiest days EVER here in Southern California!
The Sun was out, but boy it was cold! I wanted to plant more seeds but the weather just didn't allow me to be comfortable!

Yesterday, I started new seed pots:

  • Echinacea Purpurea- I always fail on these seeds, even if I follow the directions on the package!
  • Baby's Breath- light and tiny white flowers accent the bold flowers, cute!
  • Papaya tree- I heard there are male and female trees for these. I guess I have to wait and see.
  • Passion Fruit vine- I bought the fruit at a Farmer's Market almost a year ago, it was very fragrant and delish
  • Elephant Head Amaranth-pretty magenta large flower with edible leaves. (eat them like spinach)
  • Raspberry- I just took the seeds out of a berry and dried them last summer, I hope this works
  • Okra- I saved seed from 2 seasons ago, I didn't plant them last year and I missed having them

I also planted Corn and Pole Beans in with my Cucurbits. I hope they sprout and grow tall enough before the zucchinis take over!
