It almost sounds too simple doesn't it?
The weather here in Michigan has taken a turn toward the cooler. Lows in the 40's at night and high's not much more than mid to lower 60's. And rain. I'm still hoping for some bright sunny days and maybe a warm day here and there, but the leaves are brilliant and the house is cozy so it's all good.
Yesterday I harvested the Dahlia's in the garden. We aren't spending much time out there lately and with the rain they were mostly on the ground anyway. I will cut as many of the zinnia's as I can get today. Let me show you a photo Earl took of me Friday night out by the cutting garden, I am
5' 10" tall and some of these zinnia's are taller than I am! I don't know what kind we planted or what kind of magic is in the soil. We tilled up a spot out where we used to have a garden before we put in
the raised beds, but I'm pretty sure the seed packet said these would grow to the usual 18"-24" height!
I have some fun planned for later this week. We have a field trip planned Wednesday to some orchards and an orchard/winery on the west side of the state. I can't wait to share it with you, I think it's going to be a really fun day!
Happy Monday, I hope your week is full of Autumn fun :>)
