Our temperatures are still in the middle 90's but you can tell Fall is on the way. The marigolds that have been bursting with blooms all summer long are starting to slow down. All summer long I've been picking two large buckets of flowers every 2 to 3 days. Now I'm picking a small bucket's worth every 5 days or so.
There are still some buds on the plants so we aren't finished for the year but you can see the change. Fortunately, we have lots of dried marigolds on hand for all your fall dyeing needs.
