First we have the Bizarre Snapdragons. Not much to look at now, but just you wait a month or so.
Next we have Mini Bell Snapdragons. Unlike regular snaps that…well you all know what snaps look like... you can’t squeeze these little cheeks to open their mouths because they’re already open.
For those of you that aren’t familiar with mini bells here is a batch that I had growing back in 2006
Moving on.. how about these Tumbling Tom Tomatoes. First time you saw them they were about 2” tall.
They are now 10-11” tall.
I’m thinking I started these too early. Any thoughts would be appreciated. I mean thoughts about tomatoes, not those other ones that might be floating around in your head right about now.
Next we have the Illumination Begonias. Off to a slow start, they certainly made up for it because these are now 8-9” tall, and growing fast. Since we have at least 3 more weeks before I can start taking these outside to harden off I also hope I didn’t start these too soon.
Last but not least we have the monkeys (Mimulus). Plants are still fairly small, only about 2” tall but take a gander at these cuties. I know most of you would say to pinch them back, but I just can’t bear to pinch off their pretty heads. They make me smile and bring a little color when all the other seedlings are just a sea of green. And since they only take a month from planting to blooming and I have plenty of seeds left, I’m going to enjoy these while I can. Wouldn’t you?
