Now, I know.
The seed sold to me as agrostemma githago milas by Select Seeds, is NOT agrostemma, at all, but rather centaurea cyanus. I only ordered from Select Seeds because I didn't want to divide up my seed order across like ten separate companies.
Valuable real estate under my lights for something that I collect seed for each year and direct sows easily here, even in last year's drought conditions.
Last time this happened I had ordered this delicately colored petunia only to have a have one bloom looking like a petunia decorated in a wild cranberry and white stripe like the Barnum & Bailey Circus tent.
Come on, people!!!
As if the weather hasn't been enough.
This morning while preparing breakfast, I noticed I need to sharpen the edge on my French chef knife.
