Planting Seeds for Bees
Monday April 21, 2014
Last weekend I painted the terra cotta pots; this week I planted seeds. I have a handful germinating inside as well as “back-up.” Especially since it’s raining every other day. It’s hard to protect seedlings out in the open.
Nasturtium, chives, parsley, morning glory, sunflower, portulaca, lavender, baby’s breath, zinnia, cypress vine, moonflower.
Store bought seed packets are eye-catching and full of expectations while packets ordered from the same company online are strictly business. :)
It’s funny that after hours of hard work there’s quite a bit of time that all you have to show for it is dirt. I’m feeling optimistic. As I was planting, a few stray bees passed by me. Hopefully the lavender, chives, zinnias, morning glories, and sunflowers attract more.
