It has been oh so mild this summer, down right cool for the last week and half or so. Very very nice. The weather has such a profound effect of what is happening in the gardens. The lettuce beds are thriving, the cucumbers are banging. The tomatoes, oh those tomatoes, they just do not want to ripen. That tomato issue has me a bit worried, but there is only so much I can take responsibility for through this process.
The time of the season ahead is such a precious time, I am very excited to again be experiencing this. The delicious food, the cooling nights, the crisp air, this is what it is all about. The year is wrapping up and we are enjoying another fine season.
