Today is watering day, so I got distracted with many things in the garden while moving the sprinklers around this morning. I noticed that we have some late bloomer pumpkins, cantaloupe, and various squash developing, as well as a second crop of roma and cherry tomatoes. I guess everything needed a little rest before ending things with a bang. I also noticed that the morning glories are finally going to seed, so I had to grab a container and start harvesting.
I've been growing morning glories for over 15 years, beginning at the ranch. The first year I planted them, I had massive amounts of blooms so I never had to purchase more seeds thereafter. I only had one color though, a deep violet purple. It's really cool to know that some of the current seeds I have were handed down from those original plants. This year I have some new, young plants in the mix. I bought some new morning glory seeds to add to the mix. I really wanted some different colors, so I added magenta, pink, light blue, medium blue with pink stripes, and a very very blue to name a few.
