July is Nasty Hot For the SeedGROW Project

A lot of the garden bloggers participating in the seed GROW project are experiencing really hot weather that isn't conducive to happy nasturtium growing. Fortunately, most of the gardeners finally have blooms to show off. Allow me to highlight a few of posts. The 6X8 Garden has the largest nasturtium leaf you'll ever see, Erin is also growing the reddest 'Spitfire' blooms of us all. Most of us seem to have blooms that are more orange than anything. Kylee, at Our Little Acre got a yellow nasturtium in the mix. Jenn at Jenn's Cooking Garden went out into her garden at night to see how the blooms looked in the dark.The Mini Gardener discovered that even though nasturtiums are suppose to hate being transplanted hers didn't seem to mind. Abbie at K-Town Homestead has a pretty thoughtful post on her nasturtiums and growing flowering plants in a potager garden in general. It is interesting to note that Abbie is my neighbor (not literally-miles apart. We live in the same part of Chicago where the streets begin with the letter K.) and her nasturtiums seem to be doing a lot better than mine. Although, I suspect I've had more blooms so far. Need something to do with your nasturtiums? Xan over at Mahlzeit provides us a scrumptious recipe for Nasturtium Dolma. I don't know what Dolma is but it looks tastier than it sounds.
