No seriously I am done planting for this Fall. I have said that a couple of times already I know but this time I am really finished.
Just when you think you are done planting for the season outdoors you run across those great Fall sales and before you know it you are getting the spade back out.
And a new aconitum bi-colored Monkshood was planted.
Now I am finished, done!
Besides the weather will be getting too bad to get new plants a good start before winter. LOL!
I think all of the yard chores are done now also. I took my Macrophylla Maries Variegated Hydrangea to the basement this morning to spend the winter. It is good to zone 6 so I do not want be in zone denial here in my 5b zone and risk having it killed.
it is still small and is kept potted for easy moving.
(I did pull up the alyssum before I took it to the basement)
The cactus had a rough summer after being dumped so many times by the cats but it is blooming now.
The amaryllis plants were brought up from the basement this morning, watered and then I set them under lights. Last year I had not left them outdoors in the summer to get the sunlight so they did not bloom for me last winter. This time I left them out all summer and then took them to the dark basement at the end of summer so I am really hoping that will make them bloom this time around. If not, out they go.
Since I have tried this method with poinsettia's and it has not worked I am not holding my breath until I see if it is going to work for the amaryllis bulbs.
Finally I have some seeds I would like to give away to someone who can use them. The Seed Store gave me some seeds with an order which I will not use so if you would like them just email me with your address.
I have Beets, Baby Bottle Gourds, and Arugula.
