But not this year. The day after Labour Day and bam! we can barely make much 20 degrees Celsius! Now don't get me wrong, I love fall... but I prefer to ease into the seasons. We'll probably get some warmer weather in a week or two, but they are calling for a cool, wet autumn overall
And that leaves my garden in a bit of a bad spot. Remember how I said I have soooo many cherry tomatoes? When it was warm, they were ripening almost faster than I could pick them. But now that it's cooled down....

A few weeks ago, the pepper plants started flowering like crazy.
|Does this qualify as a peck of purple peppers?|
|Baby pepper! And lots of flowers|
And then there's the strawberries. Yes, I know it's September. Yes, I know I shouldn't still have strawberries, but look...
|Wee white berries!|
The cool weather also has me wanting to work on the French Braid Cardigan
|About six inches past the armholes!|
I was making good progress on it until a few weeks ago when I set it aside to work on the Layla Shawl. I should get back to it but I have to finish up one last face cloth first...
|You put it on my couch - it's mine!|
How's your weather?
