Most plants are on the floor where it's marginally cooler than up higher except for a few eggplants and peppers. I took out the center shelves and put down more bricks. Despite the fogger which wets the brick and stones it is hotter in here than outside. Right now, 88 outside, 93-95 degrees F inside, depending on where the sensor is placed.
Bell pepper bloom. Orange was
first to bloom.
Tomatoes are near the max temperature for good performance.
Seedling chives, ready to plant out.
I have oregano hunting a home, and
rosemary promised to someone. Parsley
is in the garden for butterflies, except
for one plant that I accidentaly pulled
up and put in a pot.
Coreopsis at bottom goes in the ground as soon as I make the bed ready. The broken pot with
succulents goes outside. The purple Alternanthera will remain -- it's a seedling that summered over
last year with almost no water in unbearable heat. It filled the entire south wall during the winter.
I cut it back recently. All the pots that were in here have alternanthera seedlings now. I'll plant out some to weave among the Roses. I still have to place the red and chartreuse Alternantheras. Hot weather is about to catch me running behind. I planted out Gomphrena last night at dark.
All else that is left is mostly tropicals.
I paid two dollars for a tiny staghorn fern in late winter.
Growing like a weed, it has to find a summer place soon along with
some Bromeliads still in here, Tecoma stans,Pride of Barbados and
Daturas over on the left ready to plant or pot.
Oh! I almost forgot. The Baptisia seedlings. After two months, two came up. Now I'm waiting for the seedlings AND I'm waiting for the fresh seeds so I can plant more. There is no END to it!
