congrats on the large number of people at your tour.

I put in a tomato garden for DH this year, and grew several different types of heirloom tomatoes. And I don't even like raw tomatoes! DH was in tomato heaven all summer. I also learned that tomatoes get more diseases than roses, lol. Or at least that what it seemed like. I never had nearly as many.. challenges.. growing roses as I did with tomatoes this summer.

I got tons of seeds from just two white foxglove plants that I grew from seed. Anyone wanna trade seeds?

Seed trading allowed me to grow so many things I would never have gotten around to. Garlic and melon and california poppy and feverfew.... I learned so much this year from trying new things.

Lois,Sounds like you had some fun trying new things. Yes roses and tomatoes are a challange for sure. I think the favorite thing I grew was my lemon yellow swamp Hibiscus, I have never seen anyone grown this in Mi. around here.Bon
I believe I got some white foxglove from you or someone else at GW thanks. I grow garlic also. love it and eat it often in all meat I cook like hamburger, roast.
