Not a good year here. I planted too late because of heavy rains, and then it got dry. Too dry. I probably should have watered more.

nasturtiums, supposed to be for decoration. Eaten by birds or animals? Never germinated? Never saw anything. This despite scoring the seeds and soaking in water overnight in a clean ashtray before planting.

Not exactly winners, but hanging in there:
basil (three varieties)
curly parsley
Early Girl tomatoes (only a few fruits, but good)
Super Chili chili peppers
coleus in front flower bed
hostas (five are doing OK, the sixth is looking sick.)

Some kind of mint. It came with the place, is volunteer and I don't need a lot of it.
Bishop's weed (decorative, in flower beds.) Again, came with the place. It is invasive, but what the hey.
Creeping charley, bindweed, thistles, poison ivy, two kinds of woody plants I haven't identified.

Hopefully next year will be better.
