Sunday, September 14
I caught a few minutes outside yesterday evening. It's a shame it's getting dark so early these days as I surely could have spent more time outside last night. I did some weeding in the pond area--it was full of dandelions. And, I picked a few cukes and tomatoes and removed the cucumber plants from the garden. Unfortunately, they were just about done for the year. You can't complain when you're still picking cucumbers in mid-September, though. While the gardening season might be coming to an end, I manage to drag it out in some fashion for most of the year, so I guess things are not as bleak as they might seem. I still have a bunch of clean up to do; garden paths need to be made; my 2009 garden needs to be planned; the garlic needs to be planted; seeds need to be ordered; gardening books need to be read; and before you know it, it will be time to plant the seedlings again.
