Ya know, there is a lot of mislabeling. I planted around 10 packages of old "wildflowers" in various beds. Wherever any of them grew I got tameflowers, like here just to the east of my sweet peppers. Calendula, zinnias and a single sunflower.

Here's hoping :fl that the sweet potato friends don't smother them out! At least they don't need watering.
Volunteers to the north of the bed and stretching out, too. Here is the same bed 5 weeks ago, for perspective.

2023 The Whole Seed Catalog (PRE ORDER), yes, aGAIN suckered
To be honest, I've never seen the point of getting the catalog (I still usually end up with it, through either spending so much they just give it to me or my mom getting confused and buying it thinking it's a gardening magazine or book.) There really isn't anything there that ISN'T on the Website, which is FREE and much easier for me to use.

Actually, no matter WHAT catalogs show up, I usually end up going to the website to confirm availability and to order. The only one I still order through mail is Sacred Succulents, and that's only because they don't HAVE an online order method.

Online also lets me know more or less RIGHT away if I actually GOT an item, when it is in limited supply (for example, every time I order and actual tree seedling from SS, for the period between when that check goes out to when the package actually gets to me, I have NO IDEA if the tree I wanted was still there when my payment arrived and cleared (SS tends to only have one or two of any living plants they offer.) And that makes stress).

Well, it really doesn't matter which plant triumphs. Squash is basically an above-ground sweet potato. :rolleyes:
