The perennials I bought were Agastache (to go in the space where I pulled out the dead lavender). This is also called Anise Hyssop and grows big spiky blue flowers. I have never grown it so it's a new plant for me. I also bought a hibiscus, St John's Wort and Creeping Phlox for the slope, Clelone or Pink Turtlehead (to replace a dead hydrangea). Yesterday there was a plant sale on campus so I bought three kinds of ferns to go in alongside the walkway to the basement.
For vegetables, it was 7 tomato plants (roma, pineapple, celebrity, yellow pear and a couple others I can't remember), 4 peppers (sweet banana, hungarian hot wax and 2 red peppers whose name escapes me), 1 purple tomatillo plant.
Once at the garden, I decided it was warm enough to plant the cucumbers (Poinsett, a slicing kind and Alibi, a pickling cuke), green beans (Cupidon French filet and Nickel, another filet bean), Zucchini (Giamba), Mizuna and lettuce under the cuke screens.
All in all, a very productive day.
The poppies are blooming! These are the ones I don't want because they spread like crazy

Two screens that Sean's dad gave me. Cukes planted on the outside of each side. Lettuce and Mizuna planted under the screen,
The greens are all doing well.

Broccoli Raab and broccoli on left, Favas on right with some random potatoes that popped up. Green beans planted in between raab and broccoli.
The potatoes I really planted this year. There are random ones all over the garden from previous years.
