Linda Skyler reminds us all that we are never ever really
done with our gardens!
"Here in the Pacific Northwest I garden nearly daily in
my Zone 8 area - with the exception of rainy days, which we have had so few of
the past couple of years and the occasional temps that dip into the 20s. I live
on an island that is a gardening mecca full of enthusiastic gardeners which
makes this passion such a joy. I have been tending (and filling!) my 1/3 acre
gardens for over 30 years and it truly is and ENDLESS past time. At the end of
this very dry summer most things seem to be holding their own as we now dip
into Fall weather and the beauty of a new season."
