Today in Our Garden feels and looks more like Summer than Fall #GardenCuizine

Today in Our Garden
South Jersey
USDA Zone 7a (formerly zone 6b)
October 6, 2013
Figs are finito. Lettuce, arugula, peppers and tomatoes will continue until frost. Dahlias seem to be slow to bloom for us this season. Pineapple sage is late to bloom too. Rosemary and Jersalem artichokes (Helianthus tuberosus) are blooming now along with so many other blooms including re-blooms on our roses. Rain is headed our way with cooler air to end this dry spell and unseasonal burst of warm weather.

Shown above (clockwise from left to right):

  • Japanese Anemone, Phlox, Goldenrod
  • Chiltepin hot peppers
  • rose (no ID)
  • ornamental 'Black Pearl' peppers
  • Lady in Red salvia
  • Spanish Flag vine (Ipomoea lobata)
  • Nicotiana Sylvestris 
Now is a good time to collect heirloom seeds to share and plant in your garden next season. What's blooming in your garden?
