Just before I went to NY, I sowed some Kale seeds in pots. As an after-thought, I put some more direct in the soil. When I got back the seedlings in pots had died, but the direct sown did quite well. They are a bit overshadowed by a tree so not ideal place, but they’ve provided a meal when I’d run out of vegetables. Saved a trip to the supermarket; so it made squashing all those caterpillars worthwhile.
An acer tree.
It’s been a bit of a dissappointing year for Penstemons, but now everything else is dying back, they are putting on a late-show and finally getting around to flowering. I forgot to get some flowers for a recent meditation class, so my penstemons and a few other things saved another trip to the supermarket.
