The best month.
This is the best time of the year. It was 47 degrees this morning, and will be a high of 79 this afternoon. The leaves are green. What breeze there is is mild. Not a cloud in the sky.
We made it through the long death march of summer.
My okra are producing. My squash are producing. My tomatoes and peppers are... well, the PLANTS are flourishing, but they're not making much in the way of fruit (I think that I've got a soil imbalance that I need to correct). My green beans and peas are going great guns. The pecan trees are laden with nuts that will probably open in early December.
I don't sweat everywhere I go. I'm about to switch to a larger off-duty pistol.
We've got outdoor projects that I will actually attend to.
October is my birth month, and I celebrate it the whole danged month.
