A journal documenting the trials and tribulations of gardening on the rocky coast of Downeast Maine. My attempt at keeping in touch with my many friends and loved ones who live all across the nation.

A Nip in the Air
Yesterday we awoke to lovely azure blue skies and a definite hint of autumn to come with temperatures hovering around 50 degrees. A lively breeze kept daytime temps down around upper 60's to lower 70's - a delightful temperature in which to dig in the garden.
I took the opportunity to redo the planting bed in which the Roma Beans had been and, after amending the soil, tilling and raking, transplanted the kale. Also ripped out the old pea vines and planted mesclun and Romaine lettuce. They should all love this cool weather!
Gardening and knitting fanatic! I love digging in the dirt (what little I have of it!) My zone 5 garden is located on 2 1/2 heavily wooded, rocky acres on the coast of Downeast Maine and is shared by Hubby and our two cats, Spike and Sluggo. When unable to garden, I love to knit, cook, pursue my photograpy, bake and read numerous other blogs.
