I’ve mentioned my cute little colloquial name for this plant before. The real name of this particular pink type is ‘Purple Plum’. The sign accompanying the plant also gave it the common name Tailflower.

Two of the dwarf cherry tomato varieties I am growing on the roof are coming in full force these days.
The yellow are ‘Yellow Pygmy’ and I believe the red are ‘Koralik’ (I lost the tag!). Both are delicious and sweet but the (possibly) ‘Koralik’ skins are slightly more tender and the flesh juicier.
Both plants are growing in foot-deep containers (one plant per pot).Leave a comment
I saw these dahlias while out on a bike ride and had to turn around and go back to take some photos. I’ve come around to dahlias for looking at, but I still don’t have any interest in sacrificing space to grow them. Thankfully there are lots of Portuguese families in my area that fill up their postage stamp lawns with them every summer.Leave a comment
