Recently I couldn't figure out what was wrong with my elephant garlic. Well come to find out nothing was wrong. It just needed harvesting.
So my question is, what do you do with this much garlic? I hung it up and let it dry and have given some to neighbors. I used a little in one dish but I still have too much left. Any suggestions would be helpful.This is a zinnia I grew from seed this year. It's one of the Benary Giants. I had no idea when I planted it but love it. I has bloomed it's pretty little head off.My Rudbeckia maximas have done well this year. This particular plant is about 7 feet tall. I like the big cone heads. I hope the birds do as they dry up.This is another favorite this year. My perennial hibiscus. It was just covered in blooms. Now I'm just trying to keep it going in this dry heat.As you can see the bees love it as much as I do.One last question. Uh-oh, I guess this makes two questions. Has anyone grown a Desert rose before? The tag said it could get 8 to 9 feet tall. Of course, I guess that would be in the desert. I planted it in a pot. It has pretty pink blooms and a fat trunk which is one reason I like it. It's just different. Kind of like me I guess!!
Happy gardening everyone!
