Below is a video I put together to share what is growing now.  Sharing your garden in video and images is a great way to document your experience.  The video featuring what is growing now in my zone 5b Ohio garden during the month of August.

Growing Now in Home Garden Highlights

In today’s presentation, I’m sharing from my larger traditional veggie garden that measures about 30’x50′.  We’ve had a rough start and the weather has not always been working in our favor for growing some of our favorite things. In the video above I share more about what is working and why.  Check out my collection of images from the garden below.

Vegetable Garden

Favorite From 2015

The following photos are my all-time favorites. I can not tell a lie – growing a garden like this is a lot of work. This is the year the broccoli I grew from seed got eaten by rabbits.  I also visited the Veggie Trials in California.

Sugar Tip Rose of Sharon Shrub

Photo SOon!

So excited to have this Sugar Tip Rose of Sharon by Proven Winners blooming in my landscape today.  This is a Hibiscus syriacus is a species of flowering plant in the mallow family, Malvaceae. It is one of my favorites because it is a doubling bloom and the leaves on the plant are variegated.  Unfortunately, the Japanese beetles love these shrubs.  Setting a simple beetle trap is a good way to keep the shrub looking its best. 

Flamenco Rosita Shrub 

If I would have known this rose was going to be this amazing I would have bought more!  Read more about where I got this on my site.
