Late Summer at The Battery 2018

Late Summer (August 21-September 20)

All spring, we wished for the hot summer sun. And now, only a few months into summer, we cry out for the cool breezes and the rainfall. Late summer is always a tough period to endure, as we are weary from days of blazing heat and (this year) torrential summer rains. As the temperature finally decreases, we shift from damage-control bed irrigation to tidying up areas otherwise neglected: we weed; we clean; we remove broken bits; we repair fences and monitor rodents! Despite my weariness, I love this time of year as it makes me appreciate the coming autumn and all of the wonderful colors of nature that it brings.
