Ball’s Orange

I just love the orange color Marigolds (Calendula officinalis ‘Ball’s orange) have. It is so bright and striking.

It always surprises me how much water they need to grow well. The summer here has been dry and some of my Marigolds are still dwarfs and not blooming.

Well I guess I just enjoy the ones that made it.

Mammoth

The perfect time to harvest dill. No yellow leafs yet.

I tried a new variety called Mammoth this year and it seems to be doing quite well. Dill is a bit un predictable to grow but have managed to do well several years in a row now.

I usually collect the harvest at this time of the year and freeze it to be used during the winter.
