You will have to share your favorite with me once you taste them all! I don't have the availability here for the heirloom varieties. I will plant fewer next year. Remind me of this.

Lisa: Alas, the freezer is small but I did can some last year. I hope you are enjoying tomatoes from your garden or one of the nearby garden stands. If you lived closer, I would bring you some!

Hawaiian Pineapple Has a gardening season ever flown by as fast as this one? No, that's not a pumpkin, yet. It is a tomato and the tomatoes tell the tale. They ripen during the hot days of August here in... Continue reading

I have it with some nice wine colored bee balm. It is just not my favorite color but the smell makes up for that.

You are so right, Robin. A pool is a wonderful addition to a warm summer day.

Yes, the lusty month of May. May, full of visible energy as leaves and flowers unfurl. Flowers are lusty. They are all about pollination and fertilization besides being just plain beautiful. May always makes me think of that song....you know... Continue reading

Rose: Thanks ever so much. I know, I have no problems with a scilla lawn. Feed the bees. Lisa rules. :)

It was time for a re-do on blog design. Thank you!

Good one, Lisa!

I love a blue scilla lawn as well. Something to shoot for.

Kathy: You are so right but if the scilla did hurt the lawn, I would take the scilla first. I have an interesting pattern of scilla....they stretch from the bed to the woods just where I raked out that bed and dragged the seeds along. A path.
