The seeds I planted in March and covered with my pop bottle cloche continue to grow, despite critters and weather working against them. The day after I snapped the picture of the nasturtium last month a critter, guessing a chipmunk (the same one who ate my tomato plants probably), dug the cloche off of my nasturtium. This was the night it decided to snow. It had been in the 80's that week, and then by Friday it was 30's and snow. So my nasturtiums were exposed to the elements, but they were tough and fought through it. I am jealous of the other bloggers who already have blooms, but in the past my nasturtiums haven't even bloomed until mid-August.
