The veggies were amazing this year. However, the retaining wall separating the two tiered raised bed had been eaten away by ants and was rotting away. What to do? Garden club friend Celia was replacing a retaining wall and had stones she did not need! So we rescued them.
October has arrived and here are a few photos from the perennial garden. Its darn pretty out there.
The colors will be gone soon and the tedious clean-up will begin, but in the meantime, ahhhhhhhhhhhh
Wow! That is an impressive haul of vegetables! I didn’t have a vegetable garden this year and I do miss it.
Thanks.. that was my haul before the frost.. it was a good garden this year.. I will have less space next year but I think it will still work..
Those veggies are drool worthy…Beautiful garden..Happy bloggers blooms day.
Thank you Arun.. and they taste as good as they look.. heh
Is that a single flowered pale orange brugmansia? (I know that is not your main topic, but it got my attention.) There are only four cultivars here, and I believe one that has not bloomed yet is a single flowered pale orange brugmansia. I found cuttings on a curbside greenwaste pile in San Jose. I thought that the parent plant bloomed orange, but my colleague insists that it was probably the yellow ‘Charles Grimaldi’.
Hi Tony. The brugmansia is a cultivar called “Jean Pasco”. I got it from Logee’s Greenhouse in Danielson CT about 10 years ago.
The pictures online are so variable, but most happen to look sort of like what I believe mine to look like. I know there are several cultivars available, so I will not try to identify mine. I don’t really care what it is anyway. I just hope it really is like yours. ‘Charles Grimaldi’ is nice too, but I do not need any more of it. (My favorite is a single white, but it is not quite as pretty as the others.)
