It's past time to collect some of the seeds in my garden. When I get home this afternoon, I'll pull on some long pants to protect against the skeeters and get busy in the perennial bed. Just a sample of what needs to be harvested:

Castor bean

Yvonne's salvia (S. splendens)

Salvia subrotunda

Brown rudbekcia hirta

Cherry Brandy rudbeckia

The brugs are about to bloom again. Right around the full moon.

The cabbage I planted yesterday got more water from the sprinkler this morning.

It's 70 degrees. Overnight it dipped into the low 50s. Should reach the mid-80s by 3pm. Sunny, nice.

Yes, I need to get seeds collected as we are shutting down now. A little color left but it is time to get ready for cold windy weather. My mom grew castor beans when I was a kid in the 60's. They got to be so large and then one frost and they were gone. I may start that tradition again next year. Hope you are getting better.
