We started planting in the high tunnel this week. Woohoo! Sunflowers, zinnias, and celosia all like the heat so they were the first to be seeded. We shall see how they do over the next several weeks.
Celosia is another one of my favorite flowers. It is part of the amaranth family. The flame-like flower heads, vibrant leaf color, and unique shape just make me smile and plant more. LOL!
This year I focused on the Chief and Kurume varieties. It will be a while longer before they bloom, but once they start they will be hard to keep up with.
Look for lots of marigolds, snapdragons, lilies and lisianthus at the market this Saturday.
