I’m really letting things go. I have a whole bed full of dead squash plants to dig up, as well as a veritable forest of bush tomatoes that have fruited and moved on. Other things are coming into their own now. I have a veritable forest of basil, and burgundy okra, and peppers. Also have a plumeria question.

These are pics of okra blossoms. I haven’t been lucky enough to catch one open since they started making fruit, since they only seem to do so for a day.

This is the reddest pepper ever!

And does this look like this plumeria is about to flower?

It’s been sitting in a spot with partial shade for a few weeks now. I understand they like sun, so is now a bad time to move it? There’s a spot near my back door that gets a bit more sun. Also, is it too late to feed it?

Oh! One last thing. I received a plastic bag full of live sphagnum moss two days ago. Any advice as to how I can keep it alive? Also, does anyone have experience with using it in orchid culture? And.. what is it good for, anyways?
