Summer passing by, fall crops being planted

    It seems like summer is half over, although I consider September as being summer-like. Of course, I don't have to go back to school or work so I can say that.
    I've planted some fall crops because the weeds have taken a lot of what was planted for market this time of summer. My daughter and son-in-law were here last week and we had plans to do a lot outside, but of course we know what it did most of the week. Dare I say the four-letter word?
    My daughter and I did get a lot of the onions pulled and then we laid them to dry on papers in the mud room with the ceiling fan going on high. After two days we moved them to the basement onto wire racks. Thank the good Lord, they hadn't rotted in the ground. They didn't get as big as I would have liked, but at least we have about a 100 so far. I hope some last into the fall and winter.
