Well, I couldn't wait! I ran outside and filled several pots with dirt...and then I snuck them back in...sowed them with, annual babys breath, poor mans orchid and chamomile, then I put them under a window and hidden infront of my house plants...tomorrow I'm going to sow morning glories... :D
Woo hoo!! I saw some of my babies today; however, if I only knew which is which.
I sowed poppies, asters, zinias, blue flax, morning glory, black eyed susan vines, and many more. I labelled the names with a marker on the containers. After the rains, snow, sleets, the labels are gone. Now I can't tell which is tom which is jerry. Crap!!
Ed, I just marked mine with a magic marker also, if I'm lucky maybe mine won't wear off? Yeah, I wish!
My new favorite WS method is planting in Ziplock bags(It's SO easy!) and instead of watering I put some nice fresh snow on top of the soil for mositure. Hope it works...
Is that magic marker a permanent one? Like a Sharpie? If not, you'd better re-mark very soon because the names might disappear quickly. Sharpies hold up very well for me, but I don't put them in full sun. They only get morning sun.
Something I stumbled upon as I was "finding" things around the house to use. I had a container filled with paperclips that are different colors. I stuck one in each varieties container and cross referenced on paper. Red paper clip= poppies, Pink paper clip=sweet pea , etc. It's amazing what we find to use. What would have been refuse is now reuse.
