Always a happy day for desert gardeners, the first day of fall. Means cooler temps and what really is our Spring Season here! Why Spring? Well think of it this way. We have just been through our “severe” season much like “winter” in the colder regions on the U.S.. And now we are coming out from “cabin fever”, able to get outdoors and enjoy the “spring like” weather. This next 7-8 months is a more hospitable time for gardening and plant virility
. The word Verile is the same root for ‘vernal’ or spring equinox, also used in “verde” . So it is a green, alive, and thriving time for desert gardening, hence the Harper Boys are renaming it “SPRING”!
Get out and enjoy spring gardening!
Good Growin-even if we do have our seasons mixed up!
