Garden Update

Coneflowers and Common Milkweed

First cut of tobacco - lowest leaves laid out to sun dry


New England Aster. This plant struggles every year for just a few blooms.


Well, it's officially late summer. If for no other reason than the warm spring and hot early summer have forced almost everything to bloom....peppers are the stragglers this year. Beans (3 species) have flowered prolifically this year but have been very poor producers. Wonder if that's due to humidity, frequent rains blowing the blooms off the plants, or the "honeybee issue."

Hard to tell.
