Plant profile: ornamental grasses

Great video from Meadows Farm and Nursery here in Virginia about ornamental grasses! Durable, add four season interest, and help wildlife. What could be better?

Garden photo update: edibles

As promised, I’m finally getting around to posting a few more photos of the garden. Everything is coming along nicely in spite of record heat this past weekend (reached 105 at one point) and violent thunderstorms that brought down trees and power lines (still thousands without power).


These are butternut squash and various hot peppers, planted in the bed where the lettuce and spinach were previously.


Yellow squash and zucchini


Really hoping I get to harvest this plump tomato before the (bleeping) squirrels do!


Heavy rain and wind have caused the coneflowers to lean way over and sprawl out, but otherwise they’re looking great


Chives and parsley are still going strong in this container


As are catmint and lemon balm, which I use to make soothing teas
