With my marigolds. Not all of them-- just the last 4 I planted. They're all turning yellow and dying.
I don't know why.
Maybe I planted them too late in the year. The ones I planted earlier are doing OK. It's just these last few that are dying.I had one in a pot, and it was doing fine until I put it into the ground. Now it's completely dead.
Maybe the slugs have found them again. Slugs love marigolds, and nearly killed the first ones I planted.
James wants me to move this one from the garden into my flower bed, but I don't really think I should.
As hot and dry as it's been, I think it's best just to leave it where it is.
I finally remembered I have a bed in the front yard, too, and watered it really well.
It's perked up a bit, but still looks pretty pathetic.
The heat is just unreal. It's sapping the life out of everything, including me. It's so hot, I don't even let the dogs go out for very long.
It makes me wonder how our ancestors survived. They were made of tougher stuff than I am, that's for sure.
