When I finally pulled up the zinnias, I was amazed to see how well the rudbeckia had done. I felt pretty guilty about how dry the ground was, but a girl has to have her priorities. (our rainy day resulted in only .25inch precip) I brought the coleus, and mints around back and cut back the mints; pulled out the “finished” tomatoes; potted both the rosemarys; harvested the lemon verbena; planted some mums in with the strawflower; put the kids’ picnic table away and rearranged the front porch; watered it all down real good. I’m going to TRY to have each harvest put up individually and I’ve started with the lemon verbena. Tea, anyone?
