Seasonal Cooking with Rita Calvert~The Kitchen Gardener Cook 


In Second Shift - Cool-Weather Planting, Charlotte Kidd tells about her summer plants giving their last effort as she readies for cooler temperatures and bright blue skies in the mid-Atlantic. When you read Charlotte's post, you'll agree about the Asian Tiger mosquitos.
