Scented Geraniums (Pelargonium species)

While gathering edible blooms from the wild this week, I noticed that the scented geraniums are blooming indoors in the greenhouse. The plants in the Pelargonium genus are easy to cultivate--they are tender perennials--so I grow them in pots as houseplants. Read all about the "pellies" as I call these endearing, aromatic plants.

Fall is in the Air: Enjoy the Last of Summer Bounty While You Can!

The cool weather has arrived and summer is going fast. Summer crops have stopped producing in my zone 7 garden; just picked the last tomatoes, though still have some herbs to harvest and chiles are ripening on the vine. The summer fruits--peaches and plums--are also dwindling, so now is the time to enjoy this last summer bounty. Harvest from the garden or stop by your local farmers' market or farm stand and enjoy the seasonal produce for supper--or put some up. Here is a simple recipe using the last of the plums along with some of those leggy, scented geraniums which need cutting back.

Pears and cranberries are a favorite fall combination; both are delicious when complimented by the flavor of orange.
