[gardeners] Where is everyone?

Am I the only one left on gardeners? Where is everyone, out harvesting
crops and storing them up for the winter? Or is everyone like we are, in
the lull before planting winter crops and the end of the summer crops?

About the only things we have left growing and producing are the okra, two
types of edible gourd, most of the chiles, and a couple of late-blooming
cuke plants. The everlasting flowers are doing great and surprise,
surprise, one of our amaryllis bloomed for the second time this year. That
has never happened to us before. Maybe the drought conditions closely
approximate the amaryllis' native African growing area. Talked to my big
sister about it and one of hers had done the same last month. Weird
weather, weird blooming stuff.

George, off to the dentist for a checkup and to have a broken filling
