"When was it ever less than a treason
 To go with the drift of things,
 To yield with a grace to reason,
 And bow and accept the end
 Of a love or a season?"

-Robert Frost

The Autumnal Equinox is today (September 22) and marks the official beginning of Fall. But with a lacklustre summer behind us, it is depressing to think that it is going to get colder and colder. I also heard that this fall and winter are going to be much colder than usual. More snow in the Sierra Nevada mountains and good a good ski season are the only flip side I can think of now.

"The last long aster is gone;
The flowers of the witch-hazel wither;
The heart is still aching to seek,
But the feet question "Whither?"
-Robert Frost

This weekend is still supposed to be nice in the upper 70's and maybe even the 80's, and gives us more time to close out some of our long list of garden chores. Clean up all the dead plants, and maybe plant some of the cover crops. Add more wood chips/ mulch to all the flower beds to keep the weeds down, and maybe do some slug hunting at night !

I am not planting any winter veggies, and hopefully that will have us the ability to step out of town for a few days/ week for a much needed vacation.
