So, September 1 arrived on Wednesday, and it was like a switch had been flipped. The torridly hot and humid days experienced all August magically disappeared and instead we were greeted with simple, warm days and lovely, easy to sleep in, cool nights. The only worrying thing, weather-wise, is the lack of rain. And I know I shouldn’t even mention that, given what our American neighbours not too far south have recently experienced, but gardeners, like farmers, like to talk about the weather, and my rain barrels are almost empty. That means about the only things looking decent right now are my tomatoes (planted deeply and well mulched) and a few things growing in pots. Every Saturday Jon ‘The Propagator‘ invites gardeners to share six things happening in their garden. Here are mine, with a bonus Zinnia as my featured photo this week. Just ’cause.
That’s my six for this Labour Day long weekend Saturday – stay safe everyone!
