A few nights ago I decided to finally clean up the potting bench. Up until earlier this summer we had several things growing out over there. With various projects going on around the house and the general busy-ness of the summer, the potting bench got neglected and unwatered. Therefore just about everything on the bench succumbed to the drought and heat.
Evenings are starting to come on earlier now that we’re headed towards September. It seemed earlier this year, the change of seasons. I know the drought is the cause of this but it also felt like the light changed–the angle of the sun–earlier, too. I know that’s not possible so maybe I was just paying more attention.
Over the next few weeks I’m going to attempt to get the flower gardens back under control so they can prepare to go dormant in a few months. I’m looking forward to a bit of a reprieve this winter in the flower garden and switch over to enjoying the vegetable garden again.
