picked 4 boxes of crabapples , making applesause and jelly... that wonderful smell always 'smells' like autumn ! It were down to 3C last night...poor tomatoes trying to ripen ..hope to get a few before we're gone on holidays ,purple pole beans have been amazing . My Kangaroo Umbrella finally bloomed !! This was a plant native to Australia that I got from a greenhouse friend .. mine is only 4 feet, apparently they can be up to 8-10' in different zone . Has anyone ever planted Tithania ... they are a huge plant ,like a bush really and are still yet to blom. Well, off to the BC and Wahsinton coast to enjoy the highways (motorcycle) , hopefully my tomatoes and cucs will 'wait ' till I get back to make relish and salsa :) ! happy harvest :)
