I will never claim to be the perfect gardener. By the middle of August, many plants have gone to seed, and others have suffered because of summer vacations and heavy architectural workload. To her credit, mother nature perseveres and continues to produce wonderful garden delights. Our grape tomatoes are as sweet as can be. Every few days I roast a big spaghetti squash which I often eat 3 times a day, and our pole beans are coming in quicker than I can cook them.
It is hard to believe, but we are in the middle of the Dutchess County Fair week. To me, that signals the end of summer and time to prepare for Fall and cooler temperatures.
