Thanks!

Not exactly Pit!

Plants do mature and I've got mature perennials in there too that will need some room to do their thing LOL!! Also that long bare looking border you see has tiny Petunia, Profusion Zinnia, Marigold, African Daisy and Blue Shrimp Plant seedlings. Not to mention alot of Coreopsis tinctoria and Amaranthus 'Intense Purple' self sown seedlings. The temps have cooled back into the 60 for the last 5 days, low in the 50's and we are expecting another 5 days of such temps!! Everything has just about come to a stand still....grrrrrrrrrrr!!

Thank you so much for posting your pics. You helped me ID one of the few unknowns I had. I knew that I had germination in my blanket flower and could not for the life of me remember what happened to them. Now I know. Thanks!!

:-) I like to stuff my garden, Vera. No bare soil whatsoever. :-P Now I need to thin everything out. That's why I have been sending boxes of plants everywhere in the US. lol.

LOL Pit!!

I don't like to stuff since my beds are kinda wide and I need to be able to step in here and there to deadhead and whatnot. Someday I will make some stepping stones. It's pretty fun making them too :D
BTW I did go ahead and plant out some Thai Hot peppers along the border :D
