There is a remarkable amount of garden work yet to be done. In my perfect world, the beds would be tidy, composted and “finished” for another year.
This time of year, the vehicles fill with flies during the day. I am a complete maniac trying to get them out of the truck.
Last week I mentioned how pleased I was that even though the temperature dipped down to 32 degrees, I did not lose any tender flowers or vegetables.
I did some mad scrambling last weekend. The threat of our first frost was all over the airways.
I’m wondering if it could be more perfect than the weather over the Columbus Day weekend. Then, happily, we got a ton of rain on Tuesday morning.
Several days of rain last week put me right. I finally was able to attend to some indoor projects.
The outdoor news this week has to be the lunar eclipse. Wow! It was so impressive. We hauled out lawn chairs, pillows and blankets.
I could not be happier with the change of seasons. Cool nights are just right for sleeping and midday light makes the garden world absolutely lovely.
I was so grateful for last Thursday’s downpour. It started off slow enough to prepare the ground.
