This week’s TGP highlights include this Black and Blue Salvia from Garden Grumbles that has totally given me plant lust. It wintered over well and is big, but what I love is the bright green leaf contrasted with the blue flower. I will be looking for this plant for sure!
My dahlias have just started blooming for me and I was surprised to discover on Barb’s Handbook of Nature Study blog that it is part of the aster family. Who knew?
A number of people linked up articles about fall gardens. Michelle at Simplify, Live, Love is preparing a part of her garden for fall planting and included a number of links with more information.
My fall carrot planting didn’t take off, but I do have kale, cauliflower, broccoli and winter lettuce that are doing well.
However, I don’t have anything on Holly at Tasty Travels – she’s got a lot going on for the fall, and all of it she started herself! You go girl!
What are you harvesting, and how are you preserving the harvest?
