Last Day of Summer
Well, today at 518pm EDT summer officially ends. That's when we strike the autumnal equinox and the nights begin to be longer than the days. Tomorrow will be the first full day of fall. Tomorrow, according to the ancient rules of gardening, is when I am supposed to plant my fall crops. Seeing as how there is an inch or two of water standing in the garden right now I am going to miss the ritual time and hope that the garden goddess doesn't punish me too badly for the failure to plant on time. Seeing as how rain is still in the forecast for the rest of the week I may be weeks late in getting anything done. The good news is that right this moment the sky is clear and the sun is shining. There is hope yet.
