In the garden, August 28







School (double school: work & graduate classes) begin very soon for both my husband & I...and so our time in the garden begins to dwindle. If one day we become a homesteading family with only one of us working it will be possible to tend and care for a garden into the fall, but alas, we are not there yet and will have very little time to devote to this space that needs much attention and care.

I will miss the carefree, warm afternoons with dirt between my toes and Alice playing with mud and buckets of water. Not having to check the time or worry about the next meal or getting ready for the next day. 
Ah, summer, I miss you already.
