Planting season is in full swing in much of the northern hemisphere! What do you have growing? What's going in soon? Harvesting anything?

How is fall going for anyone in the southern hemisphere? Anyone still harvesting?

Basically, how are your plants?

I've decided to take the lazy way out of gardening and planting native perennials this year. Hopefully they'll take and I won't have to replant every spring. I yanked out a few box bushes last weekend and planted azaleas instead. Over the next few years I'll remove all of the box bushes in front and replace them with azaleas.

I haven't decided what to plant on the full sun southeast corner of the house, but I want it to be low maintenance and flowery. I'm taking suggestions. We already have lots of roses.

I need to design a rain garden because we get too much rain and it erodes the side yard. I think that will be my late summer garden plan. It will be a lot of work.

In my planter garden, I'm growing Black Krim and Brandywine tomatoes, and Jamaican hot chocolate peppers, and a variety of lettuces/greens. My kitchen herb garden has not been doing very well, so I moved it outside so it could get better sun.
