TGIF! It’s looking like a beautiful day in Boston. The heat and humidity are down and I’m feeling so sorry for the folks out west enduring the heat! We’ve been very lucky this year and have had a lot of rain. I am surprised that it’s August and we haven’t had a water ban. The planters on the porch are definitely doing great. Who knew that coleus would grow so tall?! Here is a complete list of the plants in the pots.
The garden is still looking a little sad. We’ve continued to struggle with the new soil and all the little pests that come with suburban living. In the city we didn’t have any creatures except maybe a stray skunk. Although it looks like I may have spoken too soon when I said before that the brussel sprouts were dead. Crop number two has been a fighter!
