Before we started our garden we had seen a roadside stand not far from here and stopped in. We chatted quite a bit with the owner/gardener. One of the things I remember her saying was that “every year is different” and you just have to go with what you get, appreciating what does well and not fretting about what didn’t. That’s true in any location, to be sure, but especially in our high altitude. This year was rainy and cool, unlike the past couple of summers we’ve experienced.
The photo above was taken Sept. 21, 2017 the first day of autumn, and the same date the photo for the logo shot on the home page was taken in 2016. See the difference!
I know I can’t presume that next year’s results will be the same as this year, but I will try to adjust my methods to take advantage of whatever weather conditions there will be.
