My new plant which I would grow again is climbing spinach.
The leaves taste somewhat like beet greens.
It is a neat plant, but another year I will start it in the house first.
Frost has hit it now, but it was just trying to flower with pretty pinky mauve buds.
I will pot one plant and bring it in and try to winter over.
Ordinary spinach always seems to bolt on me so this is a good alternative
which can be grown in a small space since it climbs.
I bought a tall (24") mimulas red yellow centre on the Calgary Zoo Garden Centre shopping trip. I need to find the tag for the exact name. It is gorgeous with biddens. It's in the pot at the far right in the photo
