The rains from all the hurricanes and tropical storms have been sweeping through these past few days. We certainly have needed the water. Meg and I were afraid that we were going to have a dry brown Fall this year. We usually try to hit the Appalachians for a solid day hike to see the leaves and migrating birds. So it was good to see the rain, but the garden has a few beds of small greens that are begging for a break.
