Surfing in the summer that never was,

I did some of the fall garden planting over the weekend.
Collards, Swiss Rainbow Chard and Mustard Greens.
It's really nice to be able to walk outside and harvest a bit of dinner.
The dark green leafy vegetables are a rich source of minerals (including iron, calcium, potassium, and magnesium) and vitamins, including vitamins K, C, E, and many of the B vitamins.
Easy to grow too, if I can do it, you can too! Trust me on this
Some more south swell over the weekend but I am getting tired of the side shore south winds.
Anyone know when the morning offshore winds will start up again?
I can deal with the chilly water and winds if the waves are groomed to look like this!
I like to try out the winter gear before it's necessary just to make sure there isn't anything that needs repair etc.
Since I wore my winter 3/2 wetsuit all summer it was just a matter of trying out the hood.
A comfortable hood is a great thing on a cold or windy morning. You loose a lot of heat out of your head so it's a good thing to keep warm.
In SoCal it's seen as goofy and uncool to wear a hood (and it is) but nothing keeps you warmer then a decent hood. Remember the autumnal equinox is just a few days away!
A couple of cool things to check out on the web
Jason says this is the best Wedge shack of the summer here

See you around the next bend in the trail.
