My clematis paniculata has opened up in a full flush of white. The plant grew tremendously this year, and it covers the entire corner and half the front length of my fence. It's not as stunning as the photo I saw in White Flower Farm that induced me to plant one of my own, but still.

My Boltonia is now in bloom, underneath my peach tree, and it's a nice backdrop to the morning glories growing through the tree.

I got a moment to put in some late-season crops in one of my two deck planters. With my daughter's help I planted lettuce (already started), and (from seed) arugula, spinach, kohlrabi (which my daughter likes pickled), endive, and a mesclun mix.
Once the weather drops, I can cover my planter with two cold-frames, so I'm hoping to keep growing things til Thanksgiving.
I've been pulling my potatoes lately: my red pontiacs are starting to get rather big, though some are still quite small.
