agriculture and matrimony
the garden is all but fully shifted over to it's fall glory.... there are a couple okra and basil plants, and a zucchini that keeps growing, but mostly it's looking like autumn in those beds. pulling carrots and watching others sprout alongside baby beets, greens of all kinds are up and reaching for the sun's warm rays, the peas are flowering and looking promising, and we've got winter rye going into the beds that are not being used. soon we'll plant garlic and get the plastic sheets out to cover the plants when necessary. which, according to the 10 day forecast on weather.com, shouldn't be over the next 5 days while we're out of town for a wedding.
Mike's sister, dear aunt 'Jenni baby', according to Claire, is getting hitched this Saturday and the little miss will be a flower girl along with her cousin, Kate. we'll start the drive tomorrow after work and I'm looking forward to the visit. as an added bonus, it got me out of jury duty. it's been a while since I've been up there, after not joining papa and Claire for the summer trip.... it should be a good, if a bit whirlwind, trip.
