planted replacements

the seeds i had germionated for replacement teosinte in the garden told me it was time to plant ( first two photos ) was trying to root itself in the paper towels ( third ) i carefully picked each on out of the toweling and planted them in holes as deep as the root ( fourth through seventh )...i watered them thoroughly and took some of the rocks from the failed teosinte to create a partial rock mulch..i will be adding more today to help them will be hot and i cannot get out to the garden every day...even with the mulch the soil is drying and the established teosinte plant was showing some leaf curl from transpiration ( eighth photo ) ...not the jerusalem artichokes in the last photo though...robust natives unfazed by the heat
