For my own note-taking purposes, since apparently this is the year of the Very Scientific Planting

Zinnias, Poppies, Hollyhocks, and Marigolds have been planted in the front for some time; there's no real room left to do a scarification test on those. Although I suppose I could temporarily use the catnip pots to see. That might be what has to happen, will decide tonight.

Blue Columbine, Purple Coneflower, and three varieties of parsley are all in the freezer, with non-scarification seeds in the garden to see how they grow by comparison. Seeds will be taken out on Tuesday and next Sunday. (Which means making three times as many labels but what can you do.) The soil used is Pete's Plant Pleaser.

Oregano and Anise have been planted in a mixture of roughly (very roughly, I didn't measure) equal parts sphagum/pearlite succulent blend and potting soil to mimic a fast-draining arid soil. We'll see how that goes. I don't have a control sample for these, just a poor history of starting oregano from seed.

Yarrow has been not so much transplanted as moved slightly. I think that's yarrow. Still, it's been moved and we'll see if I killed it or not.

(The broccoli definitely did not show up to the party this year. I don't know if I planted it too late or what. Trying to grow broccoli has only happened successfully once in this house. Next time I'm going to put the seeds in the ground in fucking January.)

No vegetables will be planted this weekend because I underestimated how goddamn tired I was. But the ground is prepared.

*nods* Yes. Gardens are difficult, but collaborating with nature like that can also be very rewarding. Good luck maintaining.

Pardon - it seems like I got your broccoli, it showed up here completely unexpectedly (I planted it with absolutely no expectations it would come up), while the native wildflowers who should be LOVING LIFE in this climate have noped out.
