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 :)

The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago, the second best time is today.

Hi!! Hope you all are well!

Cauliflower and Cabbage in the freezer!


What I have left to dehydrate and eat fresh... Onions are good!


Onions, Potatoes, and Tomatoes... A little parched, again, we need RAIN!

(I have been weeding most of this by hand, I feel so strong and healthy!! C'mon abs and glutes!)

Pears, coming along nicely!


Dew berries, picked the first ones today!


Wild peaches!


Attack of the hollyhocks!!

(Yard is mowed now, took this the day we got back from vacay, yuck!)

(That's better, see more of the berries in the background? YUM!)

You can get a lot further with a ladder than you can with crutches!!
What do you mean what do I mean?

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!

There is just as much horse sense as ever, but the horses have most of it.

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.
