Planting for Fall

As I sifted the warm dirt through my hands, I thought of September. Would the days and nights be cooler by then?

It was 92 degrees last evening when I worked the soil and planted lettuce and spinach seeds. They should be ready for harvest some time in early September.

Just like planting lettuce in early April is an act of hope for warmer days, planting lettuce in late July is an act of hope for cooler weather.
