Fall is here!

Fall has finally arrived in Texas. Our first cool front of the season went through this morning and now it actually feels like fall.

We planted our fall garden yesterday. In a few weeks we should have little seedlings of carrots, dill, spinach, mesclun, and cilantro poking out of the ground. We pulled up the last of the summer basil and made bunches of pesto to enjoy throughout the cooler months. I love going and harvesting fresh produce from the garden whenever we want it. We don't get to experience much fall foliage, snow or ice sickles in this part of Texas. Nor do we have much need for scarves, boots or long underwear, but at least we get to garden (and have mosquitoes) year round! Maybe next weekend I'll put out some pansies and snapdragons in the front flower beds.

Hopefully I'll be able to post of few pictures of our garden patch soon. I'd snap a few now except it's wet and cold (56 degrees) outside. Hmmm . . . maybe I shouldn't have sent Jonathan to school in shorts today. It was in the 70s when he walked out the door this morning!
