Here is one more for the evening. This Althea was blown over by Hurricane Gustav and Ike, and then went over again during this super wet winter, but is making a fine recovery. Althea are pretty tough plants. I love its whiter than white flower with a dash of scarlet.

Great Harvest of Tomatoes Today, In Spite of the Stinkers, But They Got Their Share

Really nice harvest from the Tomatoes today.  And half again as many went to the Stinkbugs.  The DE I put on yesterday really seemed to have knocked them back from the numbers I saw yesterday, but there were still more than a few around.  I hit the plants with DE again this afternoon, only to have a rainshower pop up an hour later, so I just went out and hit them again.
