|Really enjoyed the podcast, I was just thinking about what I was going to do with the empty spaces, and naturally annuals were the answer. I did pickup a nice term, my garden often looks like Chaos, but now I can refer to it as "An English Cottage Garden", not so sure how the English would feel about that, they would probably say it looks more like an American Chaos garden! But, no English people visit my garden. |
Can't let Dave's hard work go unappreciated either, the new column of pictures is very much appreciated.

|Hubby and I enjoyed listening to the podcast on my cell phone on the way home from my dentist appointment and dinner with my Mom, made the drive go by fast! Now I am anxious to go scatter seeds and I really want to try a luffa and hyacinth bean vine! And the sunflowers and I miss the the nigella from my last garden and need them again, so those too!|

|What a nice podcast! I like annuals and would add Tithonia (Mexican sunflower) to your list. It's heat tolerant, drought tolerant, blooms all summer like gangbusters right up to a good hard freeze, and brings in the butterflies like crazy!!|
Oh yeh, Dave, I've grown New Big Dwarf for quite a few years now. It's a great plant with a nice tasty tomato. Mine get a bit bigger than the expected 2ft tall but still top out around 3ft or so. Their foliage alone is beautiful, very short stems/branches with nice thick leaves. You're gonna love it!
Speaking of annuals, time to get moving and sow some more in the greenhouse.
Thanks for the podcast!
