The Night Garden

I worked outside until 8:45 tonight – it was plenty light to plant the State Fair zinnias that outgrew their 4″ pots a week ago. The temps dipped to 60 tonight so the mosquitoes are on hiatus, the goshawk flew a patter 15′ over my head hunting the red squirrels, and the bees flew into the hive and went to sleep. Perfect.
Red Mars onions, Thom Thumb buttercrunch and “Pablo” lettuce, all coming along nicely.
