Home of Stella's Gardens

We are now living full time in Northeast Iowa, and working on the new gardens. It will keep us busy for quite a while...

As an avid gardener since I was about 7 years old, that gives me over 45 years of experience gardening in this part of the world. And every year teaches me a bit more.

Midsummer...Ok well after that

So it's well after midsummer, what can I say?
It was a late onset with the cool temps and damp conditions and as usual we've transitioned step-wise to warmer and drier.  The veggies are loving it.  The wildflowers transplanted one day before the hot hot hot three days were not happy.  Some have survived the ordeal but this just might be an awesome year for the mates and peppas (no jinx!!)
Home garden has awesome progress - cuke flowers, several salsa hybrid peppers well grown and one fine sweet pepper started.  Baby mates and herbs looking good.  Tomatoes are setting and the plants will outgrow their supports before its all done...
I love gardening, I just don't get to do it all the time.
