Anymore I shoot for that first 10 day (at least) forecast of a cool down period, after the dog days of summer seem to be over. My planting out time begins later this week.
Fun, fun times ahead! But first I'll need to get caught up with the mowing.
It gets too hot too fast (and sometimes too dry) to plant out in springtime here; plus, there are too many annuals that need to go in then. Autumn here is wet and cool, and what sun we do get is gentle; it's the perfect time to grow new roots.
