Melons are not my only problem in the Hybrid/Heirloom range. My favorite carrots--the hybrid "Mokum" had nearly a 95% germination FAIL . The cheap-o heirloom carrots I sowed--perfect germination. Is there something going on with the hybrids or is this just a fluke?
The cabbage are "heading up"....and how pretty this variety is.
And here is my oddball in the garden. I always let a patch of milkweed grow---it's not only good for the Monarch butterflies, but the also seem to keep the bad bugs so busy that they leave my vegetables alone. Well, look what popped up---an ALBINO milkweed. Have you ever seen one before? I don't know how this happens but I'd be interested in any info I could find on it
Hope all of you have better luck. Me? I'm hoping next year will be "The Year".
Have a great week. Stay cool (and if able, please send rain our way) Thanks!
