September in the Garden

Tomatoes! The garden continues to be the most prolific I've ever had. I am amazed at how well the new location is for them, lots of sun means lots of tomatoes. Clusters of cherry size tomatoes are all over these vines. The Cherokee Purple vine has three fat ones in the process of getting ripe. …

August in the Garden

Hot and humid has been the norm this month. Usually July is the hottest month of the year here, but it seems like the heat is lasting longer this year. The plants love it though, with lots of flowers both ornamental and on the veggies. My purple petunias continue to provide colorful displays. I saw …

I'm excited about the fair, and a few other things planned for that month. On the veranda, I …

September in the Garden

I have rejoined the land of the living, and am grateful for that. As some of you know, I spent six days acutely ill with the flu, actually more ill that I have been in about 35 years. High fever kept me from doing anything for days, other than to lay in bed, completely oblivious …
