I did plant Roses, about six plants, alive and doing well, due south of my Veggies (80 x 60) ft garden, I suspect my tomatos (the Cherokee Purple variety makes the best sandwiches) appreciate the company.

Well, Tropical Storm Debby took its toll.
We lost 4 olive trees, and the garden is pretty much wiped out.
I have tomato and pepper starts going....as soon as the mosquitoes die out, I will be back in business.

sorry to hear about the olive trees, this is just not a good summer period, but at least we haven't had any bad threats of real hurricanes yet. I know it is early, let's keep our fingers crossed.

If it happens leave before the traffic get to heavy. I know what you mean about 2004. Our younger daughter lives just outside of Orlando, she lives in Windermere.

Sorry to hear of your loss with this wacky weather all over makes me a tiny bit glad I couldn't put out a garden this year. Only now with the drought all over farmer's crops are failing so there go our grocery prices rising on top of failed gardens.

I am so glad to see you!
I took note of your current status, I hope that means you will be on more often!
The one upside to TS Debby is that our cisterns that water the garden are full again....I will be back in the garden by the weekend.
Now that prices are rising, its more important than ever, you know?

So quiet here. I planted my veggies late, so I'm only starting to near "harvest." My tomatoes, okra and watermelons are just getting flowers. There are a few winter squash growing on the vines I had to "rescue" from squash borers. Unfortunately it looks like a couple of the summer squash plants succumbed.

I got $50 plants from the nursery so I am growing hot peppers and a couple of different tomatoes. Hopefully there won't be an early Autumn, and I'll get to eat them. I also planted early eggplant and beans. If the weather doesn't stay chilly, I'm looking forward to getting to eat those, too.

I got herbs for $1 and I planted lemon balm, a variegated thyme and lavender (god help me) in the new raised beds. Hopefully the raised bed can be converted to a potager whenever I can afford fencing. I am currently in LOVE with cute, fenced potagers.

I think it is so quiet because of the lousy year. Most of the time this forum is busy until, at least late Aug. I was surprised to see my almost dead tomato plants have a few new blossoms. Our gardening editor in the Sat paper suggested we not pull them out, as they would re-set if the weather cooled down at all, and it did for about 3 days. Now, whether we will get enough to offset the outrageous water bill who knows?

Glad to hear you are just now starting to get blooms, in Sep you can send all of us your extra stuff.
