Now is the time to get your planting done for fall. “Plant in fall!” you sputter. “But I am just now reaping the harvest of summer and filling my cornucopia so that I may begin painting my annual still lifes!”

It may be too late to plant vegetables, but now is the the best time to reseed the ol’ yard. If I don’t see a “Who’s got an aerator I can use?” post on Facebook today, I’ll go water my own garden with salty tears that no one is listening.
But seriously, who’s got an aerator I can use?
