The Last Rose of Summer

Our summer garden is winding down. Heat,lack of rain and age have taken their toll. It looks pretty sad but Felder Rushing,our gardening guru,warns, "A vegetable garden tends to be messier than a flower garden because it is utilitarian, not aethetic." My response, after being away for two weeks is best summarized as shocked. The googly-eyed, screaming monsters in this blue ribbon, Archuleta County Fair, quilt cover my range of emotions. Chin up old girl. There are three more seasons. Because we're Southern we grow all year so I planted broccoli seeds yesterday. Today spinach, collards and lettuces will get planted.
