I'm back, at one of my favorite times of year in the garden--except that there is not enough time to do all that I need to do. There was a drought period and a busy period where things got a bit wild, and I have so much I want to transplant and rearrange.
And harvest! Like this shiso (perilla). I'll let some form seed and make kimchi with the rest. I've got tons of other herbs to dry and lemon grass ready for curry paste.
It is difficult to not just think about how much I have to do before the first frost. At least I know the greens and other cold weather vegetables will sit tight. One day the ornamental garden will be the way I want it, but for now, the autumn colors and seed heads make it pleasing anyway--I can wait for the upgrades.
