I need to have a reminder of when I planted the fall garden. I know I don't have a garden any more... But what I do have is the front of the berries that were planted this year. So I made two rows and I planted today Easter Egg Radishes, (30 days), Tonda di Parigi Carrots (65 days), and Bloomsdale Long - Standing Spinach (48 days). I figured that I needed to get my hands dirty since almost everything I planted died from the heat. On the plus side the grapes are still holding on and the sunflowers are just starting to open. So Autumn might hold some promise after all!

I have finished all 100 squares. I need to start putting them together.... But before I can I had to start on an afghan for my "Brother". He is getting married on Sept. 29th. Since I only have so much time and the weather has turned cooler I can handle having all that yarn on my lap. I'm hoping to have it done by the weeks end... I know wishful thinking.

I also want to go and get potatoes and beans, onions, sweet potatoes, and tomatoes this week to can up. Teenage monster will be gone to band camp and I'm hoping the little ones will be up to the task of helping out.... LOL! It will be interesting if nothing else!

My front porch is looking good. We have the front step replaced and I have all most all my Autumn plants... I still need to get two yellow mums. They will go into pots so that I can move them around next year until they are needed again.
