animal lover, gardener, knitter, and gourmet cook

after dark

It’s already starting to get dark before I’d like it to. I’m able to garden until about 8:30pm at this point, but before you know it, it’ll be dark at 7pm and I will no longer get outside during the week, regardless of how nice it is outside. I was reminded of this fact this evening when I was harvesting potatoes from the garden–the garden is getting a bit thin. In a few weeks, there won’t be much left growing. On the plus side, at least I’ll accomplish some things in the house–I have a hard time doing all there is to do whenever I’d rather be outside gardening. I could almost be happy with the crappy weather we put up with around here if it didn’t get dark until after 8pm every day.
