Electric Blue Sage, a Drought Tolerant Plant


Electric Blue Sage (Salvia chamaedryoides)  is a California native plant, and drought tolerant. The small bright blue flowers appear in the spring and continue until fall. The foliage is a peaceful gray-green and the electric blue sage is considered an evergreen perennial. It does well in full sun and partial shade. Mature plants grow 2-3 feet high and are 2-4 feet wide. The Electric Blue Sage is an attractive addition to the garden, year round.

The Cherry Tomato Crop is Abundant

In July I wrote a post titled, Why You Should Grow Cherry Tomatoes, and as you can see, the plants are still producing, and we’re reaping the benefits of my small tomato garden. I was late getting them planted, but we’re still having warm sunny days and fairly warm nights, so they are still doing well. Next year I’ll plant more, and earlier. I love having freshly picked tomatoes to top a salad. The wonderful thing about gardening, is enjoying the beauty of the present, and looking forward to the future,  whether it’s to grow flowers or veggies.
