The indoor hydroponic garden California Poppies continue to bloom. Calendula flower starting to open. One of the Basil plants is starting to bolt with a white flower. One of the Heirloom Red Tomato plants is starting to produce small yellow flowers that need to be pollinated by hand since there are no bees inside the house. Several poppy buds (Mixed Red, Turkish Tulip, and Icelandic) have appeared. Can’t wait to see what the flowers look like.
