With summer ending we replowed the upper garden and planted buckwheat along with turnips. It is coming along nicely as you see in the photo.
This is a plant I put in over 13 years ago. I don't remember the name of it, but it started from a clipping he gave me. I really like it because it is no maintance, grows with lots of sun and not a lot of watering. It has always attacked butterflies in the fall because that is when it blooms. This year it is attracting the bees. I couldn't capture what it looked like in real life covered with honey bees, bumble bees and butterflies. I have two of these in my front yard. Since the honeysuckle trimming didn't root well I am thinking of using some trimmings from this and planting them on the front hill...hmm.
Sew Long for Now!
