Getting Ready for Fall

The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler.  Friday was back in the 80s and I took the afternoon off work so we could get our planting finished.

It's been nice and cool this week so far but we are warming back up to 80 by Saturday.  Lots of mulching to be done and the playhouse to get ready for winter.
