well JoAnn (Ge) and I are growing seeds from my 10' cosmos... and we are going to keep track of how big they grow
why thank you!!... I love those trays I found at novosel.... even though I wish there was a tad bit more room at the tops.. plastic pots would be fine.. but sometimes the cow pots can mold up being so close.. they like air for sure.. of course I found out the hard way.. but once I separate them and give them a few days to breathe it usually goes away.. will have to try and remember that for next year.. trying to fit those pots in standard flats is impossible... they just flop around if you try and move them... these carry trays are great
Who will belive that one of my cosmos is BLOOMING? I took a pic for sure!
I remembered seeing this pic somewhere Post #7841727
Tallness is a dominant trait is Cosmos, so you will most likely find that they will be huge, maybe more than 10'; especially since you are focusing on that feature, lol.
Allisonand I are just keeping track for the fun of it. Its not a competition or anything.
incredible JoAnn!!!!... I have to pray mine make it though all the wind going on out there.. crazy night
Wind has almost elimenated my JI' and poppies.Dont know what's wrong with the weather.
dropped down to the lower 50's .... and crazy wind.. wacky for sure
Hot...Wet... Dry... VERY windy. I think I saw buds on the Antiquities...
Who is growing Double Click?
I lost one or two with the crazy winds last night... but still have plenty more.. I am growing double clicks as well
My DC's seem to be frozen in time...
4 inches of rain this morning. I was in Hillsboro at the time it arrived. Still drying out, lol.
Ge, I can just feel future tallness from your picture. Unique measuring device!
it looks great JoAnn... I haven't measured mine lately... but will soon
That is really interesting Ge, much better than my clay cat family that lives under the Daylillies. Your's is sow creative. Is it copyrighted?
Of course not registered.I tried to copyright a pottery item I designed and was told "Intelectual properties 'couldnt be copyrighted.
I used to tell people they were but I got ripped off anyway. The orientals are the worst.Cameras at Art Fairs used to give me hives.
think you passed me up JoAnn... I will have to measure it later
Both of you pass me! ALL my cosmos are shorties! 2ft or less! Now I can't compete.
Had a Psyche White bloom yesterday. And a pink/red Sensation the day before. Both are 2ft tall. I had better find a 7 foot one by August.
Lol ge. Can't be funnier. I see you're using a cage too, much better than the care I gave to my 10 footers. With the quality of care you two are giving them, they are definately growing to 10ft, or I'll send you something rare for your trouble, lol.
Tggfisk has her Sulphers blooming. Mine are budding. Anybody else?
The cage is so the plant wont crash on DD's vedg garden.I plan on hireing a lumber-jack in September when its time to clean up the garden
What software you use to put 2 images in 1? is it free ?
Hi dany12.I use Photoshop for some things wher I want to controle the size of the cropping.
I mostly use free software from Google.Picasa.its a photo editing program from Google.easy to download and most of all "free" When I have my photos edited I look at the bottom toolbar and find collage ,Choose the pix I want to collage stick with the little green pin icon and click collage thats where its done.
Lots of guides and helps.
Picasa is free and it is only 8 MB. Photoshop is free, but so big! The 9.0 version is now on sale at Micromall for "the low, low price of $99". Picasa is more than suffecient, Dany. How are your MGs? Mine are kinda big. I found that misty Carnivale again.
Cosmics are blooming and some Psyches are blooming, all very short though.
My Sulphers are not only blooming but setting tons of seed...y'all need to catch up, lol! I'll have to get pics in the morning. All of them were reseeds from last year. You'd never know that I pulled a ton of them early in the spring...Anyone need yellow and orange? I've got seeds drying.
DGardner.I use Picasa for nearly everything except stitching together long Panoramas.
Picasa crops too much,even Nikon Panorama Maker is uneven as to how it performes.
Picasas photoediting is so easy compared to Photoshop.
