This morning I was outside early and it felt cool, yes actually COOL! This surely means that fall is on it's way. I like to think so at least.
My garden is mixed right now with the zucchini's and cucumbers thriving. The sage plant does not seem to have had a detrimental effect on the cukes yet.
The zucchinis clearly need thinning out. I always plant too many and then hate to thin out perfectly healthy plants but I will. There are lots of flowers too so soon I hope to get actual squash.
The swiss chard (which is usually effortless to grow), is really struggling to get established, as are the carrots and beets. I suspect that I planted them all too early because I was really pushing the limits of my desert planting schedule to get them in. I will resow again next week and hope for better.
In other news I have dropped my math class. It was a very difficult decision, and not one that didn't weigh on me heavily, but it felt like the right thing to do. I was not prepared for the sheer volume of work, and right now I simply don't have the time or the energy. Other things were suffering, and it simply wasn't fair for my family or for me. I am not giving up however and will try again in the spring and make sure that I am better prepared.
And finally here is Tex. Couldn't resist because he is just so darn cute! :)
