They are very fragrant. This is where I ordered from last year, not seeing the red on there now but I think the variety was crimson? They call them dwarf orientals but who knows. Whatever they are, they're pretty :)
Amazing Fly!! Spectacular!
I did not know you could freeze cabbage. Hmm.
Are dew berries different from blackberries? I like blackberries, but I will confess I when in NC I couldn't/can't ever bring myself to go pick any on foot b/c of the thorns...ouch! On horseback you can snag the big fat juicy ones on top w/o getting bit!
And those hollyhocks! Wow! Those are tall!
Forgive my ignorance, but for you gals that are north, what are the prime months that your gardens produce? Here in TX, veggies start producing as early as March and by mid April, we are buried in produce. By mid-June, plants start getting a little scrawny and if they do manage to bud, the fruit is tiny compared to what it produced in the spring. It's in the 90's by that time. Then everything pretty much becomes toast (except pepper plants) until the end of September - if you've managed to nurse your bell pepper plants along, they will begin producing again with vigor until the first freeze mid- December gets them.
I don't live in the North but I have spent a lot of time in the mountains of North Carolina. They tend to go by the "general rule" - plant after the first part to the middle of May. And their veggies start to "come in" in June, depending on what they are...and keep coming in all summer.
