Seattle's Indian Summer is delightful. We're setting a record for consecutive days without rain. We've have gorgeous, blue, clear skies every day. After last summer's slugstravaganza, I'll never take weather like this for grantid.
Now that my "big kid" is back at school, when my little one is napping, the backyard is mine to meander. I've plucked the lavender, trimmed the roses, rotated the squash and chatted with the chickens. Pinecone grenades fall from above my garden while I fluff the pumpkin leaves and furrow my brows at some underperforming tomatoes.
Most of my summer projects ended with a flourish while others fizzled out mid July. I even had a great surprise when I reached into my potato condo and found... potatoes!!
How about a summer recap?
Just a reminder, my posts are organized by topic, so it's easier to follow a project from beginning to end, as opposed to chronologically and bounce around between my many, varying, sometimes fleeting interests. To find my most updated content, click a subject below and scroll to the bottom.
Someday soon, I'll come in from the garden and head back to my overflowing desk of "indoor projects" (sewing?!) for the winter, but not yet!
