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.


  1. your garden looks more flower-full than veggie-full just like mine this year! i'm more of a fair weather gardener too, once school is in full swing i move to indoor hobbies. thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks! Our garden was in full swing in early August...this year it has kind of dwindled out by now. Strange, but I guess that is part of the excitement of a growing never know how the year will be!

  2. Oh it's such a beautiful spot, I can see why you'll miss it!
