24 Aug 2006.The plants have probably reached their full growth for this year. There are a few fall flowers yet to bloom. All in all it was a great gardening year in my area Zone 5.
My disappointments were the poor growth of peas, cuccumbers and muskmellon due to downy mildew attack, gladiolois, hollyhocks due to fungus, and some frost damage in the spring. The bugs in general were not a problem this year. One only gets a single chance in Zone 5. Wait until next year, I always say.
