The garden has really reached it’s peak – we’ve been harvesting kale, chard, lettuce, beans, potatoes and garlic. I am starting to make a list of what worked great this year and what didn’t (onions, carrots, parsnips, cucumbers). And I am looking forward to the next things to mature (squash, leeks and tomatoes).
The last month has finally been warm enough for things to really GROW. I have drained several of the big water barrels – each time I water the garden it takes about half to three-quarters of a barrel.
Yesterday afternoon though…there was the first feel of fall. I don’t know if anyone else could feel it except me. Just a subtle cooling. An end of summer feeling….
