These flowers finally got a new home! I’ve had these for well over a year and they’ve been in the same pot this entire time. Well, Jonathan picked out this pot for me the other day when he went shopping without me. It’s perfect! The colors compliment each other nicely. And he knows how much I like purple! I was shocked how root bound these poor plants were, and yet they continued to bloom and grow. Except for those blue ones on the left, they were having a hard time. I bet they’ll be happy again with room for their feet.

My garden starts are growing like crazy! I have to water 3 and even 4 times a day but so far I’ve only fried β˜€οΈ a handful of starts. 🌱 We are still working away at building our raised garden bed along with shade solutions. My starts are getting impatient though so I ordered some 6 inch pots and have been transplanting a few each evening after sundown.

I have all of these sitting under the awning of our camper to protect them from the mid day sunshine. They get sun in the morning and again right around dinner time. The sun around here has surprising intensity even at those times but so far, the plants are handling it fine. I make sure to do all of my transplanting in the evening so that they can acclimate to their new home overnight before dealing with another hot day.

I went around and took some updated photos of several of my plants so I’ll share those here too. I’m slowly learning how much sun and shade and water each plant likes and adjusting accordingly. These plants seem a bit fussy to me and require lots of mothering! πŸ§πŸ‘©β€πŸŒΎπŸŒ±
