    Planting out fall seedlings (and swamp sunflowers blooming up a storm)

    Photo-upload-417861?1414377791 Gardened until dark both days this weekend. Prepared garden beds for planting, transplanted a ton of seedlings (started indoors a few weeks back), did some tidying around the yard (still plenty of that to do), and took occasional breaks to admire our exuberantly blooming swamp sunflowers...

    Street Gardens 3

    Photo-upload-417704?1414286331 Still in Conwy, north Wales. Some of the shop keepers, when there was space on the sidewalk, enhanced their shops with small planters. 1. I loved this marbled cabbage and its surround of winter pansies. 2., 3. A fabulous butchers and deli, where half Conwy gathered to buy lunch hot or cold,...

    Street Gardens 2

    Photo-upload-417689?1414284948 One of the things I enjoyed during my visit to Wales was what I call street gardens - the gardens in pots or large planters, public or private, that made streets more beautiful. It was September and they were still impressively luxuriant and beautiful. So here is another instalment of street gard...

    soggy, boggy, and full of rotting leaves

    My garden feels particularly bleak for some reason this fall. Wet, now that the rains have come. I should be pruning back dying vegetation and the aggressive phygelius. I should be weeding to get a head start on next year. But like the garden itself, I feel as if I've gone to root inste...

    Potato harvest not what was expected

    I noticed the potatoes stems and branches dying back as the warmer weather got underway. I gave them a few days more, thinking, from past experience in a cooler climate, that they should soon be ready for harvest. A couple more days and all stems were withered and dying down. I reached into ...

    Colors of Fall

    Photo-upload-417694?1414285324 I just snapped a few pictures of the colors on the trees in the back yard. The Frontier Elm is known for its red fall color, although it doesn't always come through. We do have some red in the foliage this fall, though, and it's looking good. The Harvest Apples, an early Yellow variety, ha...
