Welcome to the Homestead Blog Hop!


Doesn’t it seem strange to say that Fall is on the way?

But in our neck of the woods, we have Joe Pye Weed blooming! Greg says that means six more weeks til Fall! I’d never heard that one, but I’ll take it!

I’d never noticed Joe Pye Weed until the last few year. But it blooms in late summer, along about the same time as the goldenrod and Ironweed, and they together make a lovely bouquet.Joe Pye weed

I love Summer and my gorgeous flowers, but I will admit that I am looking forward to the Fall. Fall is my best time, and that’s hard to believe since I love Spring and Summer blooms!

In the mean time, we can enjoy our last flush of garden bounties and colors! Summer is not letting go around here anytime soon, that’s for sure!

I learned something new today—Joe Pye Weed is edible. Now, to me it doesn’t look like something I’d like to dig into, but I’m tucking it away to I can try it sometime.Joe pye weed

Have you eaten Joe Pye Weed? Do you have it blooming now?


You can read more about the Joe Pye Weed here.  It goes into the man behind the name and how to use it  

The previous are some pics I pulled off the internet. I like how it looks along our country roads, how about you?

Either way, happy week to you!

  1. No blooms noticed on mine yet, but they are first year plants. I have been wanting Joe Pye Weed in the garden for years and fingers crossed, these plants will take off and do well. Oh, they are planted next to my goldenrod. Ironweed is next on my list to acquire. I try to get transplants from neighbors – we have a local plant swap every spring. I was able to acquire some coneflower last year and the blooms this year are amazing. Oh, I love fall too but need the summer’s heat to ripen my tomatoes!

  2. Thanks so much for hosting this wonderful party each and every week!! I really appreciate the time and effort that goes into it along with visiting all the links and choosing Features!!! Thank You!! Stay safe, healthy and happy!!
