Oh, well, I guess Ms August must have heard us talking about her and how nice a summer it turned out to be. I suppose she couldn’t let summer end without our experiencing her hotness.
Temps have jumped up into triple digits these past few days and there are still a few more hot days ahead. I knew we would not escape a mild (cool) summer for too long. In the garden, we had to erect some shade for the baby greens. The tomatoes and other heat loving plants don’t seem to mind.
With the stifling heat and humidity here, it’s as good a time as any just to sit and go through a couple thousand photos for the 2012 “Little Homestead in the City” calendar. Yep, it’s that time of year again! Time for me to pick out and put together a calendar featuring photos from our homestead in the city. I always enjoy hearing/reading the feedback that we get when folks get their calendars. It’s a struggle to choose the photos; but the comments from ya’ll seem to indicate I have picked some winners! I joke that I could make one calendar entirely of flowers and one with just produce and another with all the animals. With only 12 months, it sure does narrow the choices down. I already made a few revisions and there’s always next year!
You can pre-order your 2012 Calendar today. Expect them to be shipped out sometime in late Sept, early October.
Psst’s there’s a pretty nifty giveaway worth $50 over at Freedom Gardens – check it out!
