The field while mostly finished, holds many surprises as well. Dozens of daylily cultivars are still blooming, though most will be done with in a week to ten days.

Kale, Chard and Broccoli plants are still growing strong on the edge of the beds as well. The leaves have started to turn so we are headed to fall.


The Monarch Butterflies were seen in good numbers through most of the season and particularly in late August. They loved the Zinnias and now can be found by the dozens on the New England Asters. Here one flutters by.

A few Annuals are still going strong, kind of.

African Daisy; the blue center is quite striking.


Double Calendula: still going strong, with buds to go. It'll be interesting how long it lasts into October.


This mix of short Marigolds is wonderful becuase of the varied coloration of the flowers. I'm going to plant more next year!

Very late Daylilies

This group stands out as the ones I have enough to sell. These are all fast growers and as they are mostly smaller, they seem to increase very quickly.


My special lates, still a mass of blooms and they will probably go into mid October unless we get a hard frost. Some of these will be available in the spring.
