Fall crops ................


I was back in the garden today. I cleaned out one of the beds and planted some cabbage and collards for fall crops. The ground is so dry, it's just dust. We've only had 6/10 of an inch of rain since the first of August. Seems like all the rain has gone around us. I'm beginning to think we have a big umbrella over us.

Hubbie will be on vacation until the 14th. We don't have any specific plans - we'll just take each day as it comes and do whatever we're in the mood for. We had planned on spending time in the pool, but the last couple of days have been too cool for swimming. The cool nights are good for sleeping however, so I'm not complaining.

Last night was so cool that we slept with the windows open and under blankets. What a treat that was. Tonight should be just as nice.
Your fall planting looks great!

Do you mean those cabbages and collards (?what are they) will be reading THIS autumn (fall)? Things do grow quickly round your way!!

You could have some of our rain.....
