and flowers too

We grow quantities of flowers too. We love to eat, and growing food to share with others is awesome. We love beautiful things too, so flowers are a joy too.

I've planted flowers everywhere I've lived, with the exception of college years. Perennials, annuals, shrubs, trees, vines, bulbs, corms, seeds. Rooting and cuttings.

Our focus has been on food crops. And yet a pack of seeds here or there slips into our soil.

Zinnias are a happy flower with a pretty long life as a cut flower. When the flowers are cut just after they open flowers can last up to 10 days.

But sometimes we miss some flowers, and they will not last in the vase. They need to be cut from the plant so more flowers will form behind.

We cut them, trim and put into any container out in the garden. They only last a few days, but we still get to enjoy their beauty.

And the butterflies still visit and feed.
