Spitfire Nasturtiums

I got fooled by warm weather and decided to put a few things in the ground, including the first crop of Spitfires. Reference the last post and see if you can figure out why they didn't do so well...

The second crop of nastys are looking nice, still in a warm, controlled atmosphere: my window sill. I put one seed in its own square inch cell. I think they liking living with each other as they tend to curve around, almost supporting each other. I believe the last frost for Boulder Colorado is mid May. I promise not to put them outside until then.

The third crop of nastys were direct sowed by Julia around our mail box. They are looking really nice: dark in color, low to the ground with promising growth.

All in all, I am pleased with the seeds. Easy and.... easy!


  1. I bet they'll look great growing up your mailbox!

  2. Hail!! Poor little plants! Can't wait to see your dressed-up mailbox.
