I have been sneaking out early in the morning to get a little work done in the garden because it is still hot here by 10 a.m. And with Hurricane Norbert heading north it is going to be pretty humid for the next few days. Fingers crossed that it will bring us some desperately needed… Continue reading September Garden Update
Have I lost my mind to go back to trying to write a blog every day for the next month after 5 months off? Probably.
