Who wants seeds?

By Penny Stine

I like flowers in my vegetable garden, but I'm learning that with certain ones, you have to be ruthless about yanking them out  before they reseed themselves all over the place.  Believe it or not, I didn't actually plant any flowers in my garden this year, with the exception of three dahlia bulbs that someone gave me.

Everything that's growing in my garden came up from seeds that last year's flowers dropped. I kind of like how the amaranth lines the pathway in my garden this year. It was actually coming up everywhere, and I pulled most of it except for the ones that bordered the path.

I need to start pulling flowers out now, before they goes to seed or I will have nothing but amaranth growing in next year's garden.

 

 

 

It's hard to pull when it looks so cool.

Oh, you can’t pull those.  It looks beautiful.  I love it!
