We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Fall Planting and Daylillies

I planted basil last week and it is coming up. I just cleaned out half of a bed and planted more bush beans. My second planting of bush beans from a few weeks ago are about 10 inches high and they look great. While I was at it I planted the last of the basil seeds that I had. Next week I plan to sow swiss chard since I have space for that now.

I also have a small melon and I hope my melon crop will be successful. We will see.

This morning I trimmed back all of our daylillies practically down to the ground. By the time I was finished, the huge garbage container was filled to the brim. It is worth doing this, because  it will help these plants bloom again in the fall. Besides it was a great work out. It took me over an hour to complete this project.
