Petunnies potted

By Penny Stine

Although I planted almost all the seedlings I started inside last weekend, I had a few herbs and petunias that I just didn't get around to planting. So on Monday and Tuesday after work, I planted sorrel, basil and celery root in the rain. I didn't take any pics because it was raining. Duh. No, I do not have sense enough to come in out of the rain.
The poor little petunias were water-logged by Thursday, so I decided I should get them in my flower pots.
They are not impressive, but they grow like crazy once they're in the ground, so I hope that soon my flower pots will be overflowing with brightly colored petunias. These are a new strain of petunias, but I can't remember what they're called. I think I also have a few very expensive white petunias called Coconut Shock Wave, but I didn't pay attention to which was which, so I'll be surprised.


I've also scattered zinnia seeds in these pots because hummingbirds love zinnias and I love to sit and watch the hummingbirds flit by my flowerpots. 

Grow, little flowers, grow!
