While watching my Camassia quamash come up, some say earlier than usual, I decided to try my luck with seeds. 

Example: Clarkia amoeba, fair well to spring, seed packet said ‘plant in fall’. I planted Jan 17th. Seeds just up last week, moved a few seedlings. Started under a cloche.

Sweet pea Cuphia is up, reseeded from last year, transplanted  yesterday! 

Transplanted three California poppies last week. Their doing well.

New to PNW, watching gardeners last year, planting, while I read wait until May. 

Weeds are growing, why not go for it. Cloches do have value. Fun to be using my collection of many years, not exclusively. 

Concerned about slugs, I sprinkled hazel nut shells around and over some seedlings. I  discovered some shells still have nuts....I’m hoping the resident chipmunk and vole, I’ve been planting and spraying garlic all around to deter doesn’t find out!  Lots of garlic plants coming up!

Unsure of name of a Camassia, sent to me from JW, little luck blooming in her SF Bay Area dry garden.  The bulbs are much larger than C. quamash, they started growth two months before C. Quamash. Could it be C. Scillodies?

Living 6 miles from the Camassia Perserve in West Lynn, I’m anxious to grow them. It’s been closed due to the @#$&%, only small paths no way to social distance.
