But the end may be in sight!!! It's September, which means it's time to start prepping the beds and planting the seeds for the Winter garden, it almost feels a little cooler, and it's sort of raining outside: amazing.
My to do list for the following few weeks (transplants to wait til the 3rd week of September or so)
- pull old summer plants and till the soil, adding compost and other amendments
- wildflower seeds (successive plantings through the end of October)
- plant carrot seeds
- multiplying onions
- sugar snap peas
- kale transplants
- broccoli transplants
- end of sept/oct: garlic
- new perennials for the 'strip' of native plants
- i MAY plant some cool weather herbs to fill in where the warm weather herbs will be passing: dill, cilantro from saved seeds of spring.
So, it may not be such a novel concept for everyone: but scattering carrot and wildflower seeds while it rained lightly on my shoulders felt paretty darned amazing!
