It won't be too long now before gardens in south-central Connecticut get nipped by frost, and that will be the end of juicy tomatoes such as these Sweet Million cherry tomatoes soaking up any last season sun.
I've been really good at not purchasing a lot of plants for my gardens this summer … too many other things to take care of and too little time. But when I ran across Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Summer Sorbet' with its showy green leaf variegation and striking electric blue blossoms, I caved.
With just half an inch registering on the rain gauge in the last few weeks and minimal watering on this gardener's part, it's a wonder of nature that so many plants are still attractive. Connecticut is officially about 5.5 inches below normal rainfall amounts for the year.
