I have crazy, out of control, cosmos in my garden this year.
My veggies sure didn’t do as well as my flowers but I think I know why.
Not only did we have no rain, but I think all my beautiful blooms were getting all the sun and my veggies suffered.
I decided to give the cosmos a cutting right down to the ground.
I hated to put them all in the compost bin, so I brought them inside and we now have cosmos everywhere.
Next year I won’t seed the flowers so heavily. Don’t get me wrong I love all the blooms, but would also like to be rewarded with some veggies.
