But it feels like fall

and it looked like it tonight at Floyd Bennett. Grass is going to seed (not sure of species, but it turns red this time of year..probably a weed) and my asters are in full bloom. It's the last full night of summer though and already the days feel so short. It was pretty dark before I left for my bike ride home around 7pm. It was a rushed trip to check on the garden. Fall crops are in and growing. Carrots, beets and broccoli are growing nicely and lettuce has already been harvested. Seeds sown for a green manure crop (peas and beans) have sprouted and so has the spinach. Tomatoes and eggplant and peppers continue to ripen, so all is good for now. We have been getting some rain so gardening feels a little easier than it did for most of the season.
