(Toledo, OH) While the fall equinox does not technically begin until September 23, 2006 at 12:03 AM EDT, it has been chilly enough the last few nights to qualify - in my mind - as "autumn."
Pictured is our goodnatured Sheltie, whose name is Jimmy. The pooch decided to occupy a patch of Le Château Brooks that until recently was an active cucumber and potato patch.
Beneath him there are perhaps a dozen tubers that I have yet to unearth. If I forget about them I will have quite a crop of red-skinned potatoes sprouting next spring.
I should take a few lessons from my dog about enjoying the warm sun while we still have it.
