This is a picture of my nasturtiums last year. I don’t know when I first became aware of the beauty, the bright jewel-like blooms, of this plant but somewhere years ago, I became fascinated with them. And then I learned that nasturtiums are edible. I don’t grow them to eat them, though.
We have had so much rain lately, day after day! On Wednesday we had sun, finally, and I prepared a planter and carefully planted 10 or 11 nasturtium seeds. I felt really pleased that I had finally been able to plant the seeds.
Then in the night, the rain came down again, –lots of rain! When I looked at the planter in the morning, it was totally swamped in water. I felt despair about the outcome for the little seeds, but I drained the water from the planter and put it into the garage for a while, where no rain would get to it.
I do hope the seeds will benefit from the extra soaking and will turn into plants with beautiful blossoms such as the ones I had last year.
