More fall vegetables

This evening, I sowed chard and beet seeds that I'd soaked overnight into one of the beds I'd prepared yesterday.  I also sowed some mesclun mix.

There's always a new gardening season, I think (I'll be ready to get this summer behind us).

The heat in the Piedmont seems oppressive (it was 95°F today), even though the mornings and evenings are OK.  It's all a matter of degrees, I guess; it was probably in the upper 80's in the mountains, but that makes a difference, even if both places are hotter than normal (whatever that means nowadays).

My gardening companion and gardening assistant enjoyed a refreshing swim in late afternoon at Lake Hartwell; a deep water cove provided cooler water than our shallower beaches.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
