Nearing the end

Garden update: The Tomatoes are coming in by the dozen and continue to produce along with the peppers and cucumbers. The Zukes have finally given out as have the bean plants, so we're starting to see the garden winding to a close for the season. It's sad watching the plants we've cared for all summer, and that have produced so much for us, dying off as their missions are at an end. It's made me kind of melancholy, realizing our mission is almost through for this year as well. There will be lots of planning for next year's garden, lots of grant research, etc. But we won't be providing anything more and that's a downer.

A blessed Holy Day of Obligation to all, marking the Feast of the Assumption. May Mary pray for us all!
