Oh~ my mistake, Daniel, I found this site from you and reposted. 

I have trouble finding blues for my gardens, and the one they show on the "Borrowed genes" article is not something I want. There is a photo deeper into the article that has some very pretty blues. I'll have to be careful when I order to make sure I get a color I want.

Borrowed genes give mums the blues

Thanks to "Naonobu Noda, of the National Agriculture and Food Research Organization in Tsukuba, Japan, and colleagues were surprised to find that inserting only two borrowed genes into chrysanthemums created blue flowers. One gene, from Canterbury bells, got the enzyme process started; the other, from butterfly peas, further tweaked the pigment molecules."

Home grown potatoes every day.   Makin' me jealous with those tasty tubers.

I've never heard of a moonflower. I'll have to google it.

It's finally dried out enough where I can do some garden weeding. My beets were "hidden", not only because of the weeds, but rabbits love beet leaves.

I've allowed spinach to go to seed. And did you know you can eat the seed pods of radish plants gone to seed? They taste just like regular radishes.

Kathy - I love moonflowers. Don't have any here, but a friend back in the Midwest who was a landscaper had some wonderful specimens. I'd say they're magical but I guess that's not politically correct for atheists.

Spud, I like those stamps.

I have lots of blooming flowers and shrubs so I see a lot of bee's. Hummingbird moths are pollinators in this area too. They are odd looking and they love the moon flowers when they open in the evening.

Does anyone else raise moon flowers?? They're a small bush that get giant white, fragrant, flowers that, as the name implies, open in the late evening and stay open during the night. The blooms die when the sun hits them in the morning. They are spectacular under a full moon. They look like they glow. They will also open during the day if heavy storm clouds come in and the sky gets very dark.

Daniel, thanks for sharing the dosage info on epsom salts. I'm going to give it a try. (In the garden)
