Subject: RE: BS: Gardening: What are you harvesting?
Janie the weather here has been so dry as well as hot and often humid that very little is doing well. The phlox is the only thing that is abundant this year. Some how I have three white ones that have serendipidously appeared amongst the pink. Hopefully they will survive and prosper.   The deer beheaded them early on and I was afraid they would be blossomless this year. It only served to spread out the blossom season.
It was less humid today and I went out to atetmpt pruning back the monster dog rose. Four leaf bags later I might be about half way through the process. Perhaps by Getaway time I'll find my way to the heart of the thing and decide what to do with it. I've got a few straggly cherry tomatoes but the zuchini and cucumbers have said enough. The establilshed herbs are doing well, but some of the new ones look like they may not make it. The verbenea I put in the Godess Garden is totally burnt out.
