    Preparing for fall -- already!

    We're now past the mid-point between Summer Solstice and Autumn Equinox and the weather projections say that we're past the extreme summer heat in our region. Looks like we can start our fall planting early, and with the variability of weather conditions in our area, getting plants in the ground early this season seems like a good idea.

    In this post I cover questions we hear this time of year. Please enjoy the season and savor your garden's offerings. Blessings to you and your garden.
