May 6: new plantings – annuals and herbs

The forecast called for thunderstorms today, but lucky for me, since I took a day off, the rain didn’t come until late in the day. I took the chance to put some annuals in the ground (and some herbs in the raised bed) so they can get watered in naturally.

  1. ‘Mohave’?! (or ‘Mohave’?!) I have never heard of it. I have been wanting to grow strawflower for a while, but have not yet gotten around to it. It was a common cut flower crop near where my Pa lived in Montara. Weirdly, the crops were not divided by color, but grew as a mix, as if it were a home garden. That is likely how I would grow it in my own garden, which is a stretch for me. (I prefer all flowers of a type to be white or at least the same color.) I remember them as a mix, so would like to grow them that way, even if I do not know what colors they will bloom until they actually bloom. Even the least appealing colors are appealing, and ironically, white is not the best color for them.
