It is sooooo cool to see plants you don't expect to bloom for another year bloom anyway!

Joe-Pye Weed...I plan to move it next spring into the new bed behind it. Sure hope I can get more seeds from this baby this fall!

More baby melon that I hope still have enough time to mature...they are far behind the first one which is about ready to pick shortly....

Aster Crego....

Looks like your Joe Pye is getting ready to bloom...
This is my first year with it...and it is bloomin' its head off.

Love the melon pics...do you have those tied to a pole?

Isn't it great webkat?! My little JPW is no more than 16" on a single stemmed plant. I can't wait to see it become multi-stemmed from the base next year with lots of blooms :D
No, the melons are clinging around an old decorative twin bed end...you know those metal frame ends for the front and back? It works perfect. Let nothing go to waist LOL!

Love that Crego Aster and your melons look great, always found it cute how the webbing comes later. I usually only get a couple of melons each season, but didn't plant any this year. I really cut back the veggie garden this year and miss all the odd ball stuff I usually grow.
