|I finally harvested a couple of tomatoes. I had them all set for their photo op on a pretty plate but can't find my camera. It is odd to be getting the first tomatoes of the year in late August. At least I am getting a few tomatoes from my five potted plants.
I'll save seeds, of course, once I cut them open. The best plant by far is San Marzano. It is doing much better than Roma. I have grown Roma in the past. I won't save seeds from this Roma plant. It only yielded one currant sized tomato so far. I am looking forward to trying seeds from San Marzano in the ground next year.
I have two green Carmen peppers ripening on the plant. I harvested one pepper so far this season. It was good, I want more peppers!
Pineapple sage isn't flowering, yet. I need to take some cuttings of it and other plants. I took a cutting from a neighbor's beautiful pink butterfly bush today. They have a row of bushes planted, but the short pink one with the blue-green leaves is my favorite. I am deadheading my neighbors annuals, gathering wildflower seeds and waiting for the milkweed to ripen. I am trying to come up with some seeds for the piggies.
The stella d'oro daylily is blooming again. Daylily snobs don't like this one, but I love it! This plant has survived in this overgrown, rocky, tree covered lot for over ten yeats since the original householders moved to a retirement home. It is planted next to a huge tree stump. That cheerful survivor is welcome in my garden! there is a red daylily nearby that isn't reblooming.
