It's sad to think that the garden is only going to look like this for just a few more days... snow forecast on the week-end! Ugh!
Perennials blooming right now: monarda (bee balm), eupatorium (Joe Pye weed), hydrangea 'Annabelle', agastache foeniculum (golden hyssop), purple hemerocallis (daylily), purple clematis, rose 'John Cabot', ornamental grasses, and a new goldenrod that I got from the Plant Share last week-end.
Annuals blooming right now: calendula, dill, poppies, zinnias, nasturtiums, allysum.
Other: swiss chard - why have I not grown this vegetable before this year? I have been harvesting it all summer and it's still looking and tasting great! I will be freezing the rest for winter cooking soon.
