Yes, love nicotiana! It is amazingly sturdy. We have a plant that grew near the vent pipe for our gas furnace. That plant lived last year well into December, enjoying the warm, moist venting from the furnace!

I do not have big gardens like most of you, but I manage to have a few things out in my fenced-in patio/garden area behind my condo! I also have wildflowers still in bloom around the patio itself.
Love moonflowers, too, but they can be maddeningly slow to bloom. I didn't plant them this past summer, but if I plant them again, I will start them indoors, well ahead of the normal growing season. They are so fragrant and huge.

Frost last night killed off most of the stems and leaves of my cherry tomato plant. Glad I grabbed all the red, green and everything-in-between tomatoes yesterday. Chrysanthemums and marigolds still look happy. I haven't gotten out to look at the whole garden yet.

Frost was really tough on my garden. I looked around this afternoon and felt sad to see so many lovely plants dead. Such is life when you live in zone 7b! Some things did survive and look all the more inspiring now.

Chrysanthemums are still going strong. Surprised the marigolds have survived 2 frosts, although their greenery looks worse for the wear.

I'm in VA, and my dang tropicals are still blooming like crazy. Mandevillas, bouganvilla, allamanda, dipladena...it's crazy. I have pumpkins out with them, I can't bring myself to cut them back and bring them into the garage while they still look so pretty.

Everything. I'm in California and I have lavender lilac blooming, this usually spring blooming. I just picked 4 nice pink tomatoes, they are planted in late Aug/early Sep. I have 5-6 zuchini plants that are doing really well. They were started from seeds in Sep, mostly male flowers though.
