An ex-colleague (co-worker) who is part native American once mentioned that her grandfather used to use Black-Eye Susan as poultice of sort and when one sees native plants in one’s garden begin reproducing like in the photo above, it means conditions are right for seed sowing.

So now it’s time to prepare for some Fall vegetables and watch for the start of the self-seeding ones.
