The musings of a chef-caterer
turned estate gardener,
digging, pruning and
cultivating my way through a year in the garden
Hi. Looks pretty cool. Wondered what’s the latest with your veggie garden? What’s your next garden project?Suburban Gardener
They're all lovely, Tim. I am yet to meet a person who's not impressed with white beauties! I love the Echinacea - curious as to what it exactly is...
The vegetables are moving a little slowly this year. It's actually been more overcast and rainy than normal, so we've had an issue with some things being slow to germinate. We're definitely behind you Californians, with the first of the bell peppers just starting to form on the plants. Probably another month before we're doing any real harvesting.
Welcome, Mouli! The echinacea is commonly known as "Coneflower," and is very easy to grow. It was being used by native Americans at least 150 years ago, but might be of European origin. It is traditionally purple, but is now available in many colors.
