Since I started gardening I've noticed that lots of things seem to move in slow motion. All summer I've watched my plants like a hawk noticing every little change in my garden plants but the slow growth makes everything seemmmmmssss likeeeeee itssss movingggg innn slowwwww moooootionnnnn. I know...."a watched pot" blah blah blah.
This past weekend it seemed like it rained for 40 days and 40 nights but it was actually only a couple of days.
As you may remember, there was water actually standing in my homemade cedar planter boxes that I had freshly planted with 3 different kinds of lettuce seeds. I just knew my lettuce was a goner, but look look! Man this stuff is growing like crazy after I removed the Bulls umbrella and exposed it to a few hours of sun. I was told by the CSA guy that I'd be eating fresh salad greens in 3 weeks and I did not believe him but after seeing this extreme growth I think he might be right!
I've noticed that my Zinna gets so tall that it kind of falls over. Take a look at the picture below. See how the pretty pink Zinnia looks like it's laying down? I love that! It's probably not so great for the plant but I think it's very cool looking. Does your Zinna lay down?
