Our summer has been one of the driest in a long time. And warm. So our growing season here is awesome. Best garden I have ever had. I have been foraging my meals daily from what I grow. In the garden I have a ton of cukes, kale, peas, and potatoes. And we have acres of wild blackberries. I have been freezing a lot of berries. Nothing like eating fresh picked fruit and greens. This is how we all should eat year around. From your own garden. Unfortuately, I can't. Though people do so now I have to try to figure that out.
I have 5 pumpkins growing too! And they are already turning orange. Last year I waited until mid October for my pumpkis to turn orange and they never did. So I carved them green.. They still looked cool. Last years growing season wasn't as warm.
Running is going great. Hoping to pick up a race in October. Didn't do the 100 miler. So I will try one here again soon. I am in such great running shape right now and if I can keep it that way going into my 100 I should do REALLY well.
