Planting our butterfly garden

Yesterday with the weather almost getting to 60 seemed like a good day to try sow some of our vegetable seeds outside for our butterfly garden. I tried to make things organized by grouping the Black-eyed Susan, purple coneflowers, zinnias, and nasturtiums, but my daughter decided to distribute the seeds a little more random. I am sure the butterflies won’t mind and guess it should look a little closer to how nature would do it.

I have learned from my years of gardening I normally am too optimistic about when seeds can be planted outside so as a backup plan we also planted some of the same seeds indoors which are currently trying to push their way closer to the PC grow box.

    You are very organized and ready to go ! .. it will be some time before I can see any green in my garden .. let alone flowers ? .. but I have lots that the butterflies and birds love too .. can’t wait to see how your garden progresses .. keeps gardeners in the north pole going until we get there ? hahaJoy

    Pretty far north here but the Pacific Ocean helps a lot 🙂 Still should be some time to see any flowers other than from the strawberries. I do have some peas, garlic, onions, lettuce, and cilantro strarting to peak up outside.
