The Huskers Red will divide well after a year or two. A little fertilizer and you will have penstemon everywhere in a couple of years. I must grow mine in patial shade — sun is just too hot down here.
Veggie wise our lettuce is finishing up. I have zukes and cukes, small but growing. Planted potatoes in the bags just to try it—they are now blooming. The tomatoes are starting to blossom. Peppers are still slow, we need some warmer weather—lots of rain this spring. Cantaloupes were just put out last week so they w/b awhile.
Glad to back on the gardening thread.
