New Nasturtiums

Every spring since buying Old Farm, I have planted "Whirlybird" nasturtium seeds to fill Bill’s planters for our deck. I love these little edible flowers in so many shades of orange.

I buy two packs of seeds, line nursery flower flats with plastic (both recycled), and plant the seeds using our composted dirt. Clothes pins hold down the plastic linings and the nasturtiums grow well in full sun. Soon the flats of twenty-four plants are divided in half, to fill four plastic (recycled) pots that go inside of Bill's planters.
