Harvest

It feels like fall weather has officially settled in. We’ve had temperatures in the 70s with lows overnight in the 50s out here on the coast. I absolutely love this weather. It feels so good to throw on a sweatshirt in the evening and sit on our deck with the chiminea burning. Actually, it feels a little like Maine did a month ago. My husband has begun transitioning our crops from summer to fall/winter. We’ll be growing lettuce and herbs inside and kale and broccoli outside. At least that’s the plan so far. Which means, it’s about time I reported on our summer growing efforts.

August marks the slow decline of summer. While we still have a few weeks of summer left, I’ll be sad to see it go. The Eastern Shore is at it’s best in the summer (although, I could do without the ticks). Taking advantage of living on the water makes the February doldrums seem far far away. The sun, sand, and mild waters are nearly free therapy. So, I’ll blame the lovely weather and summer activities for not writing, even though it’s all just an excuse.
