No kidding...but it's been dry here. Fall is usually our driest season and with little to no rain this Summer, the lawn has finally reached the crispy stage.
We've been mowing once a week up until now but moving forward, I think we'll catch a break on that at least.
I noticed our neighbor de-thatching his lawn and raising up a dust storm while doing it. This is the season for over seeding the lawn around here. Hard to believe anyone would want to be chained to twice daily watering but there you have it.
Even I've vetoed a Fall garden because of the dry spell. Who wants to have to baby a garden space like that? I've even passed on planting Mums and Pansies.
I must say it been rather pretty outside.
Cool mornings, warm to hot afternoons.
Zinnia production is way down right now so I've taken to saving the flower heads and drying them for a seed save. I've planted them in the same spot for years and can't seem to get them to re-seed year over year on their own.
I'll try saving this batch and planting them in a different spot and see if I can get them to grow.
SM has been out enjoying his Man-Cave. Football season in high gear!
What's Fall like in your backyard?
