Morning Glories

Flashback to when I grew Morning Glory flowers with ease! They were flourishing year after year when I planted them no matter what. This year however, completely different story. They did at least bloom this year but the leaves are mostly dead. I'm so happy I found these old pics! Just lovely!

New growth!

I saved and planted lemon and orange seeds in this same pot. Don’t ask me why I put them both in the same pot. I was half expecting them not to ever grow I suppose. Well, something has sprouted! I can’t tell what it is yet, though.

In other news while waiting for my seeds to come in which they never did by the way, my neighbor brought some of her extra seeds over for me to use! I could not find any corn kernel seeds to plant and I searched everywhere online. The shipping wait time was outrageous and it would be too late by the time they arrived.

So with her seeds in hand I also planted 4 rows of corn and even a row of sunflower seeds. Planted those 2-3 days ago and no signs of growth yet. Update soon!

My cuttings!

Between social distancing and quarantining I have not had an opportunity to buy any plants. It makes me sad but the less people at the stores right now the better. I don’t take this situation with COVID lightly. 

I decided to try my hand at propagating plants for the second time in my life. The first time I had cuttings and used a rooting compound on them and out of about 20 or so cuttings I actually had two grow roots! One of those was a tree. However, the tree did not survive where I decided to plant it. 🌱 That was about 3 years ago.

This is this years batch! I hope they grow! I’ll update periodically as I check for any root growth.
