One of my favorite things to do in the fall is plant in a light rain. Yesterday the garlic went in the ground and it was wonderful to work outside with just the sound of the rain drops. I moved some perennials around and didn't need to water as I knew it would rain off and on most of the day.
It's also been my greatest success in extending the season. My little hoop houses have kept the greens coming. I've been picking radish greens, lettuce (three kinds), celery, parsley, tatsoi and other greens. Mixed together they offer an intense flavor that leaves the stuff at the store in the dust. I wonder how long I'll be able to pick. Last year, the season lasted all winter, I guess we'll see.
The maples are the last trees to turn, the leaves will be gone soon, turn them into compost if possible.
Enjoy the cool days of fall, still time to plant bulbs, I saw them at 50 percent off at the nursery.
Trees and shrubs can still be planted, I'm planting an azalea tomorrow, can't wait!
