Patricia, your growing room looks so sturdy and up to the job. Did you design and build it? The abundant growth looks like a greenhouse paradise. Also like your solar fountain.

I'm watching to color closely to get an idea of when to pick. This is another photo but they are a bit distant....

Joan,

I hope you will plan on next year's garden.  I think you will have more energy than now, and will be chompin at the bit to get back into your Eden.

I'm already thinking about next year.  More ideas about what to grow, and how to grow it.  Learnings from this year.

Randall, I enjoyed your blog post, tremendously.

Spud, it's amazing.  Sometimes the insects find a plant that they really like, and they are all over it.  Now it's the sedum.  I found a few more sedums around my old yard, neglected and in the shade, and moved them to the apiary garden.  Mainly for next year.  It's also easy to divide bigger sedum clumps, and start them from cuttings.  Something to think about for next year....

4 or 5 bees in one picture!  They must love that Sedum.

We could use some of your rains! It's typical August drought season in Indiana. I can't seem to find the time to get on the computer, but I did just write a regular blog. Check it out and give me some feedback. Thanks. Later.

Seeing your photos of harvested items gives me a bit of a nostalgic reaction. I bought my seeds in late winter, got all my equipment and supplies and was ready to start my garden. I started chemo instead and didn't plant one seed. No plant, no harvest. Well, next spring I am all ready to go. Meanwhile, I will read all the books I have been setting aside. Laura installed Kendle for me, and I have several books sitting inside my computer, but won't get to them until it is too cold to be outside.
Thanks for sharing your photos, even if I have only the same perennials that you have all seen.

Bees on Sedum Autumn Joy.  It was hard to choose a picture.   liked several.  This is the plant I moved last week.  The leaves plumped up with repeated waterings.  Now it almost looks like it started out in this location.
