Well, what a pleasant surprise for the start of October – some sort of breezy heat-wave! Perhaps it has to last a few days to be considered a “wave”, but I am thinking of today as a heat-wave if only because the winds are soft, warm and could totally fool you into believing we are still mid-Summer. The house is hot, and the breeze is soft and seductive. Yay for my porch tomatoes, and probably yippee for all of the birds and animals scrambling for food before the soggy cold darkness descends. Still, can’t say I am feeling the October in the air. I have another batch of cherry tomatoes quickly ripening on the vine, and both plants are starting to flower again. That is how much like summer it feels here in the West Hills.
