Naming Names

I was asked about the shorter than usual sunflowers I planted in the herb and edible plants bed at the Saratoga Springs Community Garden.

I planted two different types. The first is Burpee’s Sunspot and only grows 18 inches high. The other in Burpee’s Sunrise-Sunset Mix and it reaches a height between 28 and 36 inches.

Seedlings should start emerging in 7 to 14 days.

The beans in plot #44 are Burpee’s Royalty Purple Pod and the yellow beans are Burpee’s Goldrush. The beans will  be ready to harvest in 55 days. That is August 7th. Yes, I counted.

BTW-I’m not getting anything from Burpee…it is just coincidence that they are all Burpee seeds.
