On Monday, I talked about my little “problem ” with hay bales and corn stalks. I remarked that I had no idea why I reacted so viscerally to them but I really disliked seeing them and perhaps I needed a garden psychologist to solve my issue.
Over the long weekend, I read a column in the Alaska Dispatch News by a Garden Writer colleague. He said that his first September column every year has to be about the dangers of frost and how to save plants for the next year. And I thought that I had issues with fall!
In the places in Colorado where we vacation every winter, it has already snowed. So talk about a lovely place to visit, but not a lovely place to garden!
So all of this has give me a healthy perspective on my relatively long growing season. And while it may not make me like those outward signs that fall is coming any better, at least I am not scrambling around worrying about frost just yet.
