One of my rhodanthemum bit the dust. Not sure why, as nearby neighbours seem to be doing fine It was very hot and dry last week, 38° every day… maybe the heat?
Partner suspects maybe ants damaged the roots? There are a lot of ants in the garden, at least 6 different kinds just judging by size, and some of them like to build tunnels and mounds around plant stalks.
Edamame outgrew the net covers. Added bamboo poles today to keep them standing, garden can get very strong cross winds at times.
I was one pole short, so one plant got chopsticks taped together instead.
Second attempt at germinating Japanese maple seeds I picked up from the street has worked better than expected. Looks like I should have checked a week or two sooner, but hopefully some of these work out.
Transferred into take-out bento tray for next stage. #gardening
I run https://sunny.garden, and probably do other things too.
