I have zinnias in two places. Inside my garden fence by the chamomile and along the rock wall garden just as you come into our yard. This year in the second spot I put in some Sensation cosmos. I've been very displeased with them. They look ratty and mildewy. One section bloomed nicely but now has stopped as it is setting seed. Another section hasn't bloomed at all. I'm contemplating ripping them out, but the weather has been so humid that I just can't seem to get myself to work in the garden at all.
Most of what I've been doing is avoiding the garden. With the humidity so high this week it has been hard to be outside. Yesterday it broke a little and I took advantage by biking with a friend. Next week they claim it will be much nicer. The temperatures will be lower and the humidity won't be as oppressive. Maybe I spend more time in the garden. That chard really needs to get picked. It has been three weeks already. Usually I pick it every two weeks. Luckily not much is happening in the garden right now, so I don't need to do many chores.
