Wanted to make the title a shoutout to trans people who are being persecuted for simply wanting to live their lives in peace, but I was afraid that my attempt at a joke might backfire.
Even with a quite rainy and chilly week, it's time to get the cold-tolerant plants out into the weather. So,
Rudbeckia, 15 or so, filling in the rows where one out of two plants from last year had not survived.
Campanula, 40. The plants that looked amazing last fall were entirely eradicated by deer, who ate them around the foxgloves. Hoping to have blooms this season.
Dianthus, Amazon 'Neon Duo,' transplanted into the hoophouse.
I guess the dianthus Amazon series has been around for a while - think Sweet William on stilts - but I grew them for the first time last year, and now I'm hooked.
Also continued the daffodil harvest. Will have a good amount in the cooler for Mother's Day!
