Am I Rich Yet?

The answer to that is no.  Not today, not tomorrow, not any time in the foreseeable future.  But I am having some fun.

Sweet Williams have been doing great, but are about shot now, with daisies and heliopsis coming on.  Here is a shot from last Saturday’s market.

Bouquets for sale.

The nine bouquets were nice, but I could have used more.  Note to self:  let’s get some more early-blooming plants in for next year.  Blue would be nice.  How about Centaurea Montana or Catananche?

This week, heliopsis is doing really well.  See?

Still waiting for cosmos, zinnias, snapdragons, and someday… sunflowers.

Flowers-a-poppin’? Not Exactly.

As always in the garden, there is good news and bad news.

Sweet Williams are blooming up a storm, but a few more decorative peppers are disappearing every day.

Bells of Ireland are starting to send up stems with bells, but quite a few celosia have been bent by the wind.

The first planting of sunflowers is nice and thick, but I had to replant in the gaps to get them that way. No more using the Earthway seeder for suns!

My new Highland White Dreams daisies have quite a few blooms, but it has been so chilly that only a few are open. Hope I have some for Saturday’s market.

This is my only row of producing flowers at this time.

I have sold some to a local florist and some at the farmers’ market.  At the market, I made bouquets that sold well.

Can we please have some warmer weather now?  (I’ll probably be sorry I wrote that.)
