Today In Our Garden
South Jersey
USDA Zone 7a (formerly zone 6b)
September 28, 2012
What happened to the cool fall temperatures? Today is hot and humid here in South Jersey. Our backyard gardens continue to produce herbs and vegetables and are still blooming away. Hummingbirds and monarch butterflies are migrating now too.  

As I strolled through the garden pushing my way past the tall chia that is all over the place, I noticed we have so many green tomatoes left on the vines. Birds and butterflies soared overhead. A hummingbird let me take his picture from a distance while he took a rest in between the dahlias before visiting the Lady in Red Salvias.

Photo clockwise from top left to right:
  • Lady in Red Salvia (grown from seeds)
  • Rosemary R. officinalis 'Arp'
  • Plumeria Frangipani (started from a NOLA cutting!)
  • hummingbird in front of Jerusalem Artichoke
  • Nicotiana
Planting note: it is still not too late to plant fall crop seeds like Arugula and lettuce. I attempted to sow some today, but mosquitoes chased me back into the house.

Happy and Healthy Gardening!
