Re: Pictures from the garden to share

In Picasaweb, if you tap/click on "download" tab, you will see your photo in a new window and the web address/link box at the top of the window will contain the file link. Copy that and paste here between the img codes (you can get the codes by clicking/tapping on the (img) button above the full editor reply box

...like so:

I just have to post a photo of my Joe Pye weed (Big Nate). This is only it's second year in the ground, but what a show it is putting on!

Thanks! The amount of butterflies, and honey bees it brings in, I will surely be planting more next year.

Re: Pictures from the garden to share

I don't know that you need to plant more at this point! :) What you have is going to keep spreading and getting to be a bigger and bigger colony. If you want some in other spots in the yard, just divide it and move some.

Re: Pictures from the garden to share

Yes, it is pretty well behaved. It doesn't spread by runners and it doesn't seem to much re-seed itself. So it isn't invasive -- mainly the colony just gets bigger. Where you have ten stems now, maybe fifteen next year. But you can dig and divide the clump.

Re: Pictures from the garden to share

Very good to know. Thank you rainbowgardener. Actually my thought was to purchase a few different types from my local Long Island perennial retailer. Two I have in mind are, Eupatorium rugosum ‘Chocolate’ Joe-Pye Weed:, and Eupatorium dubium ‘Baby Joe’ Joe-Pye Weed:

Re: Pictures from the garden to share

I picked these tomatoes today. I live in a neighborhood of garden thieves. So far I've been lucky, no tomato thefts so far. I saw a young guy on a bike eyeing my tomato plants so I picked the red ones just in case he was thinking about stealing them.
My dahlias are so beautiful. I have one that grew sideways. The flower is a couple of feet left of where the base of the plant is.

What a beautiful color of that Dahlia! I planted this year what they call the Humpty Dumpty mix. Not impressed at all.

Re: Pictures from the garden to share

Yes, that orange color is my favorite. I only planted about 6 bulbs. The plants get so big it seems like I have more than just 6. I want to plant some more of thise orange dahlias next year.
Humpty Dumpty mix sounds like it must be leftovers - the not so popular colors.

Alright, I know this looks wasteful, but it sat around too long waiting to be stuffed. From '09:

It's a Tiger moth caterpillar of some type, maybe a dark form of the Yellow Woolly bear, maybe a Lined Tiger moth. But not an Isabella Moth.

Re: Pictures from the garden to share

Just bumping this because it was too fun to look through! :()

ETA...here’s my contribution... a volunteer (so no ID) variegated leaf tomato seedling -

(It could be one of my significantly variegated Shimofuri segregates with striped/variegated leaf and trunk stems and tendency to show purple/pink when cold, but it could also be from one of the other hobby breeders’ cross.)
