A month or so ago, this bed was flourished by peanuts. They were gone, replaced by marigolds, a surviving celosia, and rows of green and red spinach. Because the bed is so close to the pedestrian walkway, we just call the bed Walkway Bed.
The soil is rock hard, 8 inches down. So we just be happy with small plants without deep penetrating main roots. Marigolds are definitely surviving, winning the war with snails and slugs. Thanks to the poison pellets. But without occasional encounter with slugs, something is missing in the ruralness of our little vegetable garden. I miss snails trail on the walkway.....
3 short rows of green spinach
celosia blooms very much visible
celosia is self seeding now..,
I pick 10 seedlings and place them in little pots.
Soon the second generation celosia will be planted.
I am still thinking
and what arrangement?
to treat these little seedlings of celosia.
