Saving seed of the narrow leaf zinnia, Z. augustifolia, is important because it is impossible to find the seed and a very cold winter could result in the seeds in the ground being lost.
The berries on the espaliered pyracantha turn a little more each day. The mandevilla, which I allowed to climb up high into the plant will soon need to be found a warm home, if it is to survive the winter.
A Mexican marigold mint has seeded between the pavers in the vegetable garden. Fine while small but it may have to come out before it takes over.
Even the patty pan squash peppers and zucchini are miniatures of those that grew earlier on in the year. I picked all the lemon basil which had seeded next to the compost bins. The deer don't seem to browse here.
The Mexican pots which have been hanging outside all summer have now found a new home for the winter. I attached some battens to the wall in the potting shed from which to hang the pots.
I seem to have an ever increasing number of pots to be accommodated over the winter. It takes time to get them all inside.
