Seed GROW Project - Not Yet a Climber

Here we are, two months after planting Nasturtium ‘Spitfire’ for the Seed GROW Project. I’ve pretty much ignored these things since planting them. No, let me correct that. I've ignored them completely.

The weather for the month of May was out of the ordinary, with us having more than two inches above normal rainfall. When I wasn’t working at my regular job, it was raining. When it wasn’t raining, I was working, and during the bit parts of dry weather where I was able to get in the garden, I was rushing to get other things done.

So here we are at the beginning of June and the Nasturtiums are doing fine, although I’d expected them to have reached the first level of fishing line I’d strung on the teepee for it to climb upon. There are some yellow leaves, but I imagine that’s due to the excessive rain.

Maybe I’ll have some blooms to show by the first of next month.

thanks to for the seeds."

Nasturtiums are a hardy lot -- yours look like they're doing very well. :)

Even though I have a bloom, your foliage is much more, um, foliageier. ;-)

Good luck with the nasturtium. I should have grabbed a few seeds myself.

Your nasturtiums are looking really good! Last year when I grew the 'Moonlight' variety they didn't trail until later in the season but when they did it was like someone added steroids to the water, it was crazy.

Nice batch you got there Ms. Kylee. I think you might have to help them climb by attaching them to the fishing line. Perhaps not though. I reckon we'll see. ;~)
