The title of this blog comes from one of my favorite hymns."It is Well With My Soul"
When peace like a river attendeth my way
When sorrows like sea billows roll, Whatever my lot, Thou has taught me to say
It is well, it is well, with my soul

What you are looking at are two identical planters. Each planter holds the same three plants, a Mexican heather, a geranium and a sweet potato plant. Same dirt, same location, identical pots, and each plant was the same size when I planted it...so what's up with this?
The sweet potato plant has completely taken over and crowded everything else out, it seems like it grows an inch a day and will soon be completely blocking the steps
You can see more clearly what was planted in both pots.
So what happened with this one. If you move move the leaves around you can find the Mexican heather and geranium but they are real small in size. Worse part is this plant seems to be a haven for mosquito's. Any ideas on how this happened? More garden oddities, my gardenia bush is blooming again, it's never bloomed in the fall. The vegetable garden we had high hopes for, never produced much of anything but some basil and a few tomatoes, disappointing.
So how have your gardens done this year? Plagued by weather problems like we were? Thinking of some fall crops, maybe some greens? Any other suggestions? We do have cold frames we can use.
Hope you all have a productive Saturday, it's finally cool here, inside project underway.
