a second (and third!) crop of strawberries;
an entirely unstoppable mini rosebush;
several colors of sweet peas;
the first morning glories;
and the first ripening vegetables:
Those cucumbers were surprisingly large, and really tasty! I can't wait for the peppers to ripen.
I went out yesterday to take some photos before Hurricane Irene arrived this morning. My Thai eggplant "tree" (it's the biggest thing on my porch!) finally started putting out buds;
the coleus plants have AMAZING color (entirely different from the colors of the plants I took the original cuttings from, for some reason);
the bell peppers are getting pretty enormous;
the first Heavenly Blue morning glories have finally come out, and the cosmos is starting to flower for the first time too;
some beautiful colors on the tomatoes;
and the lantana, which has just kept blooming steadily through the season.
I brought many of the plants inside, but the garden is so enormous by now that I just can't fit all the plants in the house. I hope that the ones currently out in the hurricane survive!
