It is another lovelysummer day, and the garden is as weed-free as it ever gets. I have been workinh hard to get it in condition before I leave for England next week and give all the weeds time to grow back. The potatoes are mostly dug, I pulled out the rapidly spreading cucumber vines, the beans are gone. The tomatoes and peppers are flourishing and the turnips, onions, parsnips ready to dig when I get back. The corn has been wonderful, just a few small ears left ready to pick and enjoy. The flowers too are looking so good, colors bright as can be. This has certainly been a good year. This last month has been given over to dental surgery which has limited my social life. It scares even me if I catch a sight of myself in the mirror, and I have not been able to eat in public. But my new spare parts are supposed to be in place nect Monday, in time for my trip. The barberry bush is turning orange, always the first to show signs of fall, and so the end is in sight. Looking at the wealh of plants all around it does not seem possible that it will all shrink to a few odd sticks and branches.
