The Dahlias are opening! As the rains from Hurricane Ian arrive in our region, I ran out to cut some of the dahlias from our garden plot before they become too waterlogged. We need the rain after a very dry last couple of weeks, so it will be nice to enjoy the blooms indoors.
The rest of the plot is cooking along with the cool-season seedlings all putting on good growth including the Golden Chard, Kale, Broccoli, 'Round Black Spanish' Radish, Bauer' Lettuce, and 'Snak Hero' Snap Peas.
About Fenton Friday: Every Friday during the growing season, I'll be giving you an update on my community garden plot at the Fenton Street Community Garden just across the street from my house in zone 7 Mid-Atlantic MD/DC border. I'm plot #16. It is a 10 ft x 20 ft space and this is our 11th year in the garden. (It opened in May 2011.) See past posts about our edible garden by putting "Fenton" into the Search box above.
