Time to stack the shovels for the year? Heading toward 40 today, up here in Maine. And 50 next week. Of course, the weather could be fooling us, luring us into relaxing before slamming us with more snow, or even a cold snap. I just hope the seeds and the seedlings are smarter than we humans are.

Last year’s sheet mulch will get layered over with this year’s. Forty or sixty days from now. Sigh.
