The seasons are changing, summer running toward fall. It’s been cool here, cooler than I’d expect for September. I will miss the Contented Crafter in the coming months. Pauline, as many of you may have read in Alys’s lovely memorial piece, died on September 5th. I first met her when she came to DC as a member of the “blogging babes” and was privileged to show her, Alys and Kelly around DC. Since, we wrote, skyped, visited each other’s blogs and grew in friendship. I wish her spirit Godspeed and her daughters, Danella and Joanna strength and comfort in the times to come.
In the garden, I’ve been planting for fall as I clear space. If it’s a mild winter, I hope to have lettuces, beets, parsley and a few other things. I’ve had eggplants, peppers and green beans galore this year, along with a lot more tomatoes than I usually get. We’ve had a lot of rain, which may have helped.
In my garden, there is a mystery squash. I have no clue what it is, but I think it’s a winter squash and I have quite a few of them. If you know what it is, leave a comment.
More to come soon on final donation weights and fall plantings. Take care all!
