End of summer

Well - not much left as far as annuals. The Santa Claus melons are still growing and producing - slowly. The brief cool down last week has resulted in additional fruit set - we'll see if they last. Although the peppers are growing, they're not setting fruit very well (at least the jalapenos and bells).

The herbs are doing well - made a quart of pesto yesterday.

Thinking about, in a couple of weeks, getting ready for fall planting. Not watching the calendar but more so the temps/precip. The first strong front mid September will be the cue. No rain here for a month, although we got a shower today to knowck the dust down.
