This is a planting weekend. The sugar snap peas are coming along nicely. They are just about 2 feet high. We have the tomatoes in the greenhouse but they are growing slowly.
We took advantage of the nursery sales and bought a bunch of annuals. This is the first year that G has actually encouraged me and suggested that I plant some annuals. I got two 6-packs of rudbeckias; Indian Summer and Prairie Sun. We put each type in a large pot. We combined the orange rudbeckias with light blue salvias. It should look great. I also got a few other traditional annuals; yellow snapdragons and Lilliput zinnias. I made small display bed and it should be nice for cutting. Zinnias are so cheerful.
Today we picked up a few rose colored calibrachoa. They look like little miniature petunias and will be much better in our rainy weather than the large petunias which can look terrible after a rain storm. G put the in a small metal tub with a miniature purple fountain grass and some sedums.
And it was warm enough to plant green beans. This year's varieties are Blue Lake pole and Romano pole. We set up a teepee out of rebar for them to climb on. It will be 6-8 days before they germinate. I'll put some sluggo out tomorrow to keep the slugs at bay
