Happy Sunday Friends!
Is it starting to feel like fall where you are yet?! It’s still in the 90’s everyday here in Tennessee and I’m craving blue jean weather. I’ve decided to go ahead and pretend temps have fallen to the 60’s, by roasting pears, potting mums, and burning my pumpkin candle.
Obviously saying fall is my favorite time of year is super cliche, but oh well I’m saying it anyways. I love warm weather, but sitting by a fire wrapped in a blanket is far superior to sunburn, sweating, and bug bites in my opinion.
Gardening is the one thing I will miss when the temps drop, so its time to construct a greenhouse. I’m working with limited space, so a small one will have to do. Planning to see if I can save some of my hanging baskets while growing a few veggies. This will definitely be a new undertaking, so if you have any greenhouse advice please let me know!
Meanwhile have a Vanilla Bean and Fig Cocktail (linked below), enjoy the last few warm days, and start planning your pumpkin designs for your front porch!
