The Backyard is Taking a Back Seat
Fall is here... and the gardens are slowly going to sleep except for the fall greens. For those of you who don't know me, I'm a mountain biker. This summer saw more garden activity at the sacrifice of me riding for hours on end. But I really miss riding bike, so the gardens are going to take a break for the next month or so as I head out on the bike for some long, endurance riding. I plan to enter a 62-mile race on October 11 called the Ironcross in Michaux State Forest, Pennsylvania. It'll take me about 6-7 hours to finish, and I'll be getting ready for it with long 3-4 hour rides over the next few weeks. So the garden is taking a back seat for while! See you later this fall.
