 An early fall?

Writing that list, I realize we still have quite a full garden and we're looking forward to fall! You know we are finishing an unusual growing season, when the pumpkins are ripe at the same time as the watermelon. That's why you are starting to see pumpkins in the stores already. It might be an early fall - the leaves are already starting to drop - but it's anyone's guess. We'll just have to wait and see. Until then, enjoy the cooler weather and we will see you next week.
