My sunflowers have not done near as well as I expected when I first saw all those sprouts coming up. Of the 25 sprouts I planted, less than 10 took in the garden. Since then, several more died off - I only have five left. Some that seemed to be doing really well suddenly rotted away. I suspect it was because they didn't have he proper support and were mostly laying in the dirt.
So, I got out there to give the few that remained a helping handing reaching for the sky.
One of them has finally bloomed though.
And the other seedlings have not been as great a success as I'd imagined either, but the columbine and poppies seem to be showing some promise. And I think the handful of daisy and dianthan seeds I tossed in might be coming up.
I planted five sweet pea sprouts, but only two have flourished. I built them a little trestle to keep them off the ground as well.
