Time to update some summer projects. First is the leggy petunia problem. As you might remember, when we last left them, they were shorn down to about 2" stalks. After three weeks and a couple douses of Miracle-Gro, this is what they look like now, full and fresh as springtime:
Below is what it looks like today. Besides sitting outside every day since its makeover, it was subjected to a hailstorm last week that produced 1 1/2" balls of ice. (Thankfully, the petunias blossoms were spared as they hadn't popped open yet.) Anyway, I watched the hail fall and crossed my fingers. Looks perfect from this distance.
