Re: Definitely fall

Hello Everyone,
        Here in Evergreen Colorado, my containered tomatoes finally were
killed by a 24 degree morning on Monday. I think this has been the longest
growing season for me since I came to Evergreen...130 days at least. I do
not remember when  I planted in May. It could be as long as 150 days.
        Also, we have not has any rain since September 6 and no first snow
yet. Very scary. Like Auralie, I am concerned for the well, so we are back
to watching when we do laundery, showers, and dishes. All outdoor and indoor
watering this year had been out of the rain barrel and gallon jugs as usual.
