Thanks, all.

I also bought the Nigella from Annies in 2009 - it survived, but was quite small in 2010. It must have produced enough seeds so that I got a "patch" of about 4 plants this year, and they are quite healthy. Zuzu - remind me to save you some seeds since these did come true the second year. It may be worth a try. The guem, blazing sunset, is also from Annies and those two plants really took off this year. The guem stays green all winter, so it provides some structure to the garden when most of my perennials die back. It is odd - about half the plants I get from Annie dies, and the other half grows like gangbusters. Orlaya grandiflora is one that I have killed 3 times.

Mike - I have purchased agrostemma before, but they were so wimpy. BUT, this year, I got some seeds and about 10 plants germinated and survived. It is the pink ones - not the white ones. So, if you are interested in the pink agrostemma, remind me to save you some seeds too if they seed.

I joined a seed swap this year, and got over 100 packs of seeds. I have only sow about 40, and have about a 33% success rate.

Happy summer solstice to all!!! I took advantage of all that day light and planted some strawberries and long beans - and finished at 9 PM.

Mike, cheez its sound like a good substitute. I use other crackers too, but mostly use oatmeal and it is a healthy alternative. Course then I make a fissure down the length at the end and add cheese, so there goes the healthy thing!
