Linda Skyler reminds us all that we are never ever really done with our gardens!

"Here in the Pacific Northwest I garden nearly daily in my Zone 8 area - with the exception of rainy days, which we have had so few of the past couple of years and the occasional temps that dip into the 20s. I live on an island that is a gardening mecca full of enthusiastic gardeners which makes this passion such a joy. I have been tending (and filling!) my 1/3 acre gardens for over 30 years and it truly is and ENDLESS past time. At the end of this very dry summer most things seem to be holding their own as we now dip into Fall weather and the beauty of a new season."
