Spud, have you had a killing frost yet? We haven't had our first light frost; however, Sept. is when we start getting some serious frosts. 

I imagine you have to cover your tender plants regularly, now. 

Is that clear space on E. Gould & Garrett Way a sand quarry? I forget, is your soil sand? Oh yes! I remember now, you had a problem keeping your young seedlings moist and you brought in a lot of compost. I enjoy your photos.

Yes, I save all kinds of seeds: sunflower, phlox,Monkshood, Hollyhock from Turkey, borage, chives, Foxglove, Echinacea, forget-me-not, garlic, rhubarb, tomato. Sadly, my Greek Oregano died out that winter I was so sick. I guess that was 2013.

If anyone wants some seeds, let me know and I will send you whatever you want. 

I will need your mailing address.

Chris, can you receive seeds?

Hollyhock seeds, but I can't send them, customs would destroy them.

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?

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.
