This is a busy time of year with a years food supply for all the family to be harvested. There is, as well, unending weeding due to the endless rain and good germinating weather. I am also  collecting seed for myself and various seed exchanges. I always have pots of seedling lilies on the go all the tíme as they can take up to five years to reach flowering size though Lilium formanosanum can flower in the second year. These two are variations on Lilium svovitzianum and are very tough strong growers that never need staking and with several plants will always set seed.
