Many of my beet seedlings were eaten soon after they came up. Tonight, we re-seeded beets in between the remaining plants. The red ace beets that I plant aren’t adversely affected by hot weather if I leave them in the garden, so I hope that they will be able to grow during the summer even though beets are usually planted in early spring.
We also planted ‘scarlet king’ zinnias in a large, round pot and ‘extra dwarf mix’ sweet william in a window planter box. I don’t have space for annual flowers in my permanent flower gardens, but I like to plant some in containers. I’ve had hummingbirds visit my zinnias in past years and hope that they will appear again this year.
