Beet patch in & amongst the lettuce & radish’s. I let them go to seed so that I will not have to buy seeds next year & so hopefully I will have a fall crop!
white sage – a “weed” around these parts & some would say they are so prolific why plant them in your herb garden – well easy answer! LOOK at it! Beautiful! I have clipped some for drying & burning later. The rest I will leave to bloom.

I added some fun to my arbor entrance to the greenhouse this year. Again we have pole beans but I added Morning Glory & allowed all the little volunteer cherry tomatoes to remain. It should be beautiful when all is full and in bloom!
