Any one saving seeds? I've been collecting marigold, four o'clock, and day lily seeds, and once we are done with the Indisn corn will save some of my favorites to replant.

I hand pollinated the daylilies to create new hybrids. For marigolds, I'm mostly saving the brick-red single ones but also some doubles.

If the Chinese beans don't get moldy in the rain, I intend to save those for next year's crop too. And some squash and pumpkins.

Ruth, thanks for the link. Very weird. I have not found any of my vegetables wearing lost jewelry.

Spud, we just got some rain today. It's a sign for me to really start winding down. I'm kind of tired anyway and glad the main part of the gardening season is coming to a close. There are still Chinese cabbages and Chinese radishes, turnips, and a few other things. I bought a Gravensteins apple tree at a local nursery - end of season sale and fall is a good time to plant. The spot is currently occupies by beans, but it will be ok for a few weeks in its container.

Joan, that's an incredible sunflower! I have a few in the 12 foot tall range. the seeds will go for chicken food this winter.

The rain is finally starting here.  There was 0.64 inch a few days ago, and quite a bit it forecast starting in 3 days.  Not much for a lot of you, but a fair amount for this area.

Spud, I don't know how you can keep from keeping Bunny for a pet. So small and vulnerable, I wager that he will let you pet him. 

"The tallest sunflower measures 9.17 m (30 ft 1 in) and was grown by Hans-Peter Schiffer (Germany) in Karst, Nordrhein Westfalen, Germany, as verified on 28 August 2014."

"Dwarf Sunflowers "Johnny's dwarf sunflower selection includes a number of different colors, sizes, and even a double-flowered variety. These sunflowers are perfect for planting in containers either singly or with other varieties, as well as in the garden where they will grow just a little taller. Compare dwarf sunflower characteristics in our Dwarf Sunflower Comparison Chart."

We have cold weather, too, and beautiful partly cloudy skies, nice big cumulus clouds. This week we are in the mid 40s and low 50s 

Colors turn quickly red on the Burning Bushes.

It does look smaller than average, but it's been a long time since I've been around rabbits, so I'm not sure.

Spud, is that a miniature? It looks like one. Shorter ears and about half the size of a full grown rabbit?

Cute rabbit. I would probably want to make it a pet.

33° F was predicted as a low for this morning, so I closed my small greenhouse to keep my muskmelon warm.  The low only got to 39°, but the melon plant probably appreciated the extra warmth anyway.

Here's the black bunny in my yard, warming itself in the sun.  It looks brown in this image, but it's really black.
