So, how did everyone do with their WS?

I had about 2 dozen jugs planted. I've had about 5 or 6 with no germination. The other did really well, overall, and a few are still doing OK--just very tiny seedlings.

I planted out zinnias, chinese houses, delphinium, and several other jugs this weekend. My chinese houses are just about to flower. Still need to get out my corn cockles (inspired by joanne's pictures), bachelor's buttons, and bells of ireland (really poor germination).

Looking forward to hearing everyone else's results!

I only did about 20 jugs this year. All germinated at least a few seedlings, some better than others. My seedlings are mostly tiny, except for euphorbia marginata. I only sowed a few of them, 4 germinated, but they're over 6" tall in their jug.

None of the seedlings look good. Thanks to record rainfall, I can't plant them because it's always storming.

Thanks, Allison.

I started taking updated pictures a few days ago but the camera batteries died before I finished, as usual. I need to get a few more shots, then I'll post a few new pics. We picked our first cherry tomato yesterday, but we still don't seem to have a whole lot of fruit setting.
