But the main job last evening was transplanting the healthy, beautiful little tomatoes and cucumbers that sprouted in two large planters where I had installed Blue Hibiscus in a mix of yard earth, my compost, and Perlite.
Did it at twilight and watered them in tenderly so the little darlings could rest overnight. On morning inspection, they all looked great. On mid-afternoon inspectiion, after hours of hot sun, they're still hanging in there. Yay!
Also transplanted a whole bunch of snap pea vines that had sprung up where the original snap peas were earlier this year. They planted themselves in the wrong places. I know it's the wrong season for them, but they were so enterprising that I decided to give them a chance.. I've never had huge luck replanting vines, so whatever takes, takes.
