The barbecue at McGonigle’s was spot on perfect with eye appeal, tenderness and flavor. The baked bean medley, mixed with a mild McGonigle’s secret formula sauce and pieces of barbecue meat, along with the waffle fries, made excellent complementary sides.

I drove along the white horse fence and turned into the driveway flanked by two stone pillars. The driveway stretched in front of me and at the end stood a 160 year-old estate home. The Greek Revival house, with its white Doric columns and red brick facade surrounded by 30 acres of green grass and rolling pasture, is more likely the scene of a civil war reenactment than a food truck roundup.
From Dennis Patton: The garden centers have been abuzz this fall with the sale of grass seed. It is almost like the holiday shopping season, only so many days and so much to do. Homeowners that have overseeded this fall are often confronted with more challenges than just seeding and achieving a good stand of grass. Lawn weeds also invade these thin lawns. For more, read on.

QUESTION: Dennis and Carole – I appreciate both of your expert opinions. Maybe I should have been a little more specific in my question. This plant has shown up in three places in my vegetable garden as if it was a weed. I didn’t plant it and have never planted a pink salvia. I have perennial salvia in a couple of different places. So I guess the real question is, how the heck did it get in my yard if I’ve never had this plant? It seems to be placed totally at random like a weed would be. Thanks for all the expertise you have added to my gardening experience over the years. This is my favorite gardening blog. - Lori..................................ANSWER: Seeds can be "planted" by wind, water, insects and animals (feathered, furry and, of course, human). On the human side, we can inadvertently import seeds in compost, manure and mulch. If in the composting process organic matter does not reach the temperature necessary to kill seeds, the seeds could survive and wander to another garden. Did you by chance add purchased or free organic matter to your veggie garden? Besides that the only way I can imagine is that a vegetable seed packet contained a few of the salvia seeds.

QUESTION: Wondering if this is something I want in my garden? I’ve got two and I didn’t plant them that’s for sure! Thanks - Lori........................................ANSWER: From the picture, it looks like this plant is in the Mint family. The identifying characteristic are the square stalk, opposite leaves, and the flower, which looks to have 5 petals, 2 lobes up and 3 down. Rubbing a leaf between your fingers may help to identify what kind. The Mint family is huge, and most reseed nicely. More than that I cannot say. Perhaps Dennis can provide more info. Carole-Johnson County Extension Master Gardener......ANOTHER ANSWER: The mystery plant is a Salvia which is commonly grown as an annual. - Dennis FOR MORE, READ ON...
