Is it fall yet?

Hey everybody.

The heat and drought just won't let up. nevermind, we will continue to prepare for the fall/winter season as if the earth will continue to spin and the seasons to turn. gotta trust something. A few scallions are up. I think it has been too hot for the radishes to sprout, but the carrots are trying, and the Asian greens are definitely up. The tiny celeries are up. They are so tiny, even tinier than parsley or snapdragons! Just eentsy. Hard to believe they will be two feet tall by spring.

We are doing a lot of planning. Where will the garlics go, the shallots, the spinach? Can we find space for 600 feet of garlic? what about the onions? It has been overall a great summer, just mighty dry.

Going to the mountains for a day next week, look at a tractor, take a day to relax before the fall season.


Shorter not cooler
