SeedGROW Project October Update

October here at Millertime has come up with some chilly night temps, making my veggies quite unhappy. However, my 'Spitfire' nasturtiums laugh at the cold.... ...perhaps more easily done when you creep along the ground under the planter.

In this group, 'Spitfire' has rambled in and amongst the veggie and squash foliage very successfully...

...and with the extra sun exposure asserts itself as a bloom star in my fall garden!
They might even make it to a November post!

It would be cool (literally, ha ha) if the nasties made it to November. It's been fun following their progress, in my own garden and everywhere else.

VERY cool! I've enjoyed the project too, I hope there's another one of some sort next year. It was interesting to feel extra successful growing something in my climate as opposed to warmer areas, but that's just the nature of the nasties I guess :)

Yours look very similar to mine... but I don't think mine will make it to November, though. (We'll hope!) :-)

lisa said...

Glad to hear it! I've got my fingers crossed for warmth into November...against all odds :)

I think mine will make it to November, they usually do. We're suppose to hit 80 this weekend so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

lisa said...

Wow, 80's?! I thought we were warm with 70's...I feel optimistic for November nasties for both of us!

Mine are still going strong in the container - the ones I planted out in one of the gardens couldn't take the heat so well. Have enjoyed the project!

Funny how that is, you'd think that containers would suffer the heat more. My container nasties did MUCH better than some I'd planted out several years ago as well...veird :)
