Mother Nature, Please Give Us a Break!

The heat is gone. It's cold and wet now. Two weeks ago it was hot, humid, and very dry. By the time the temperature was finally beginning to go down a bit, we decided it was time to do some planting. We have been very busy, so we just decided to buy out a day and do some planting, otherwise it will never get done. We planted as many of our favorite fall vegetables that we had time to plant - greens (collards, mustards, and turnips), onions (red and yellow), garlic, carrots, rutabagas, beets, and more. Guess what? Within two days, everything was under water. Now I know why people left farming alone, and moved to the cities. But we will not be detered by Mother Nature!

We could never plant those things here - apart from Japanese onions, and onion seeds in pots for next year - the other things would not survive

Great photos and descriptions
