Having some Issues here. I just chopped out the 4 foot cosmos which wasn't flowering and it had been growing in the pot where the standard Iceberg had been, which started to do very poorly this summer. A girl can only take so much black spot before she cracks. So there is a Hole. The climbing Iceberg is hanging in there and I fed it little meals frequently this summer to perk it up again, post black spot malaise. I'm very attached to it: it arrived as a twig from Texas...This week one of the green nicotiana at its feet decided to wilt all at once and fall over. No clue.
In front of it is the Mexican heirloom cherry tomato, going gang-busters in about...5 hours of good sun a day.
Near the door, where the lilies of summer cavorted, is a large pot of basil. Can never have enough. I don't know what this green variety is... Bigger than Greek, smaller than ye regular greene. I saw a variegated basil at Union square last week and if I'd had one hand free of bags I would have snapped it up.
Interestingly, this happy basil does not have as much sun as it ought...maybe 4 hours. It has also not tried to make flowers yet, as the roof basils have.
My haul, yesterday evening...
Wish list? I'd like a black currant. Saw one on a terrace yesterday with fat currants. Ate some.
