It’s barely August and I’m already tired of the heat.
You know the heat: The oppressive, abusive August heat that feels like Summer has it out for you specifically. It’s rough.
It makes it hard to do anything outside and since the days are longer now, it’s harder to go to bed early. Quite frankly, the abusive weather makes me want to sell everything I own and move to a commune in the mountains.
But, fret not. Fall is coming. Really, it is! (I have to believe this).
Just around the corner is fire colored leaves, pumpkin flavored everything and the apples!
August will end soon, and you’ll be able to plant cabbages and kale and collards (my favorite brassicas).
