First Day of Autumn
By Dom Lopez
Despite the fact that Starbucks has already been selling their pumpkin spice lattes for about a month by this point, the 23rd of September is technically the first day of fall. A day looked forward to by us all, this marks the start of cooler weather and the death of those accursed mosquitoes. Bust out those Ugg boots, yoga pants, and flannel button-ups cause it’s hipster season! This is also a great time of year to look at soil preparation, plant those cool-season veggies, and enjoy the last harvests of your bountiful gardens.
