Fall is not usually a great season for Central Mississippi. Instead of having a wonderful harvest season full of typical fall colors, warm days and crisp nights, and amazing bounty, we typically have burned ourselves out by now. The harvest has been stored, the leaves are turning brown from the August heat and lack of rain, and the temperatures don't begin to moderate until October or November.
Lately, though, we have been having some wonderfully cool nights and mornings with amazingly warm but not hot days. This change of normality is pulling a doozy on my work ethic. I want to be outside instead of being tied to school and work. I have been cleaning the weeds and summer plants from the garden and will plant (as soon as it rains) a fall/winter garden of lettuce, herbs, onions, garlic, spinach and other greens. But, basically I just want to wander around and enjoy the breeze and cooler air. I am hopeless.
