|Daylily flower, seedling started in early 2015. 6.5.17|
Currently, this daylily is in a container with other daylilies and lilies. I may keep it there for a while, seems like a good spot.
In the kitchen garden:
-Tomatoes are growing nicely.
-Two days ago I planted the 3rd set of sweet corn. I transplanted the few plants that germinated from the 2st set, to a grouping of 6. The second set had better germination, and I think I will have 4 rows of 5 plants each, when they are bigger. The first batch was Trinity, the second was Bodaceous, and the third was something from Territorial Seeds, but I forget the variety.
-Peppers are growing nicely.
-I planted the Chinese wide beans that I pre-started in wet paper towel / ziplock, last week. Some had the first root, or the beginning of the first root. These beans were seeds that I saved from last year, which I grew for very old seeds, I think more than 10 years - seeds that were in the closet. They are a traditional wide bean, used as green beans, originating from Northeast China. Germination of those old seeds was less than 10%, but I'm expecting something close to full germination from this batch now.
I expect to plant one more batch of Chinese wide beans, and one more batch of sweet corn, in a couple of weeks.
