Autumn is Upon Us

The Autumn equinox is upon us this week, however, it has yet to feel like it and I am not complaining considering the slow start to summer that we had! I went to Lowes today in hopes of finding more larger plastic pots for my hot peppers. Unfortunately they had none. What I did find was some bulbs! Found a pretty big Allium that blooms 10-12", Christophii. I also got two bags of Ruby Giant Crocrus and planted them in front of the house by the upper walkway. It gave me a chance to yank out some of the variegated ivy in the one area.

My super hot peppers took a toll this summer during our drought. Some of the plants in the smaller pots really got stressed even though I watered daily. Finally I had the time to pot them up even though it is almost time to have them come back in. I pondered moving some plants in, but I hated to lose outdoor time by bringing them in too early. :\

I pulled up some dead Dill and found a volunteer Indigo Rose tomato! I also pulled out some really dead tomatoes, Manyel and Black Krim. :'(
