Identification from a book. You know, with paper and ink!
Same time, same place at the New Century Restaurant on Madison Street in Shelbyville. Too bad we missed the "Fun Show" folks. We would have loved some visitors from out-of-town.
I found out that our daughter reads some of my blogs when she sent me the attached photo of a page from her wildflower book. Seems like Sandy's mystery flower is identified but we will wait for her final approval.
Planted some cactus at the garden on the square this week and watered those planted the week before. They all looked pretty good so maybe someone else is watering as well?
This hot weather looks like ti will take a break in the next few days. I am looking forward to it and the rain that will hopefully accompany it. Hot, dry weather has a way of discouraging my gardening more than anything else.
All the garlic has dried up nicely. I thought we had enough to last the year and provide our planting for next year but I am hearing plans to share our bounty so..... it may not last as long as I thought.
Our snow and sugar snap peas have just about succumbed to the heat. We might get a few more harvests, but not for much longer.
The self-sown plants are doing great in this weather. I am seriously thinking of planting seeds in early winter, like nature does. All the purposely planted veggies are requiring water, even though the wood chip mulch is retaining what I expected. Guess the roots just never developed as quickly as needed to tap the moisture.
