the mystery seed that 'a' planted at the you grow girl book launch party was a sunflower. which is a funny coincidence b/c along w/ my cosmos seeds, i sowed sunflowers too. three out of the four are developing heads, so hopefully i will have 3 more nice sunflowers blossoming on my balcony.
although, i'm probably jinxing my sunflowers by assuming that they'll bloom. earlier in the summer i thought i would have a bountiful harvest of tomatoes, but instead i only have 2-3 tomatoes on each of the plants. booo
lessons learned from my first year of balcony gardening is that plants need bigger planters!
