I took this photo of my vegetable garden at 12:00 noon on October 21. Though our weather is still warm (60's) and sunny, my garden's sun has disappeared behind the neighboring houses and tall trees. These days I can watch the shadow of our neighbor's roof peak move across our house. A big tree to the east of my garden blocks the morning sun, so my garden is totally shaded until about 3pm.
On a happier note, I have received a phone message about my new community garden plot. Though no plots are available now (in the fall) plots will open up in April and I am at the top of the list to select one.
