Labor Day marks the last of the Summer holidays and the unofficial beginning of Fall! We in the desert couldn’t be happier to see it come along! Hang in there, the days are getting much shorter and the nights are already starting to feel a little nicer. Soon the nights will be cool and the days not so hot and the Fall gardening season will be in full swing. We hope to get you ready,little by little if we can. As you’ll see things are already starting to change around here. New items are showing up and the nursery will begin to get filled up with those items that mark a return to the weather and the reason we all endure the long hot summer!
