Weather for Walnut Creek, CA
I love how google makes the weather thing so easy to just copy and paste! haha. But as you can see it is getting warmer, and the nights are not getting as cold, which is great for the roots of my fancy plants!
Let's show you guys what I'm currently growing from seed. Most of what I plant and claim I grew I purchased from local nurseries and hardware stores. BUT these Sun Flowers are all mine from seed!
If you look closely you can see that they have almost DOUBLED in size compared to my last post. All that growth in only about 5 days no less. Sun flowers are cool, they grow really fast, and produce a fabulous display!
All these Sun Flowers have germinated and sprouted in about 1.5 weeks and they are already pretty dang big!
I now realize I never told you the types of sunflowers I planted. So I will tell you the ones you see in the pictures.
The left one with the seed still on its leaves is a Sun Spot which will get to be about 1-2 FT tall. The right is a Mammoth Greystripe and I expect it to get to 8-10 FT tall.
The plant in the Very far back that is kinda red around the edges is a Velvet Queen and I expect it to grow to be around the height of an aveage American man, 5'6-5'11
I will be taking these sprouts to their new homes pretty soon. They will soon out grow their little eggshell container that I used to start them in . Once planted I believe they will grow to their full potential and might even produce a crop of seeds to much on!
KK all, thx for the reads again! come back soon!
