Fall started in the wee hours of this morning. I'm sure somewhere in the archives of this blog I've proclaimed spring to be my favorite season, but I really think I'll give fall the edge. I love the cool mornings, the turning of the leaves, and being able to put the garden to bed for the year. I'm getting ready for next spring, though; this morning I planted a raised bed full of garlic, and put in many bulbs that arrived Friday by mail from Botanus. This afternoon I lit a small bonfire to clean up some branches and debris that's laying around. I'm estimating that I'll need another 192,412 fires to get the place ship-shape. Maybe in ten years the place'll look good.
