This evening the garden tour revealed that most of the tomatoes and all the watermelons need to be ripped from the summer beds to make way for the winter garden. As I was picking the first of the pumpkins and the last of the tomatoes, the wind kicked up and the big, fat splashes of rain came down. Looking at the photo you could imagine that it was time to fly inside and get some warm, comfortable clothes on and hibernate. Negative. When I went back inside, I needed to crank up the AC. It was 102° today. With 100% humidity, it was gross. If this is what it’s like in the South, count me out.
Tomorrow, the ripping commences with hopes of getting some seeds and seedlings planted. Thank goodness Mama Nature is going to cool it down a bit this weekend. There’s lots to get done before the real autumn arrives.
PS – What’s going on in the blogosphere? Most blogs that I follow have slowed way down on posting…just like me. There must be lots of stuff to get done before the real autumn arrives everywhere.
