                "Labor Day is a glorious holiday because your child will be going back to                                school the next day. It would have been called Independence Day, but                                    that name was already taken”

                                           Bill Dodds (1952-    )

MID-ATLANTIC WEATHER WATCH: Periods of STORMS (1,2,3,4,5,6); fair and warm (7,8). Showers (9,10) with fair and mild temperatures (11,12,13).

TORNADO WATCH: The Hagerstown Town and Country Almanack sees no tornado activity in the month of September. 

FULL MOON: September’s Full Moon is most famously known as the HARVEST MOON.  It is the Full Moon that falls closest to the Autumnal Equinox.  During this time, the moon would rise very soon after the sun would set on several successive days, giving the farmer a few extra hours of ‘light’ and a little more time to finish up their daily chores. This year, the Autumnal Equinox will occur on Friday, September 22nd and will signal the beginning of Autumn. The Full Moon closest to that date will occur on Thursday, October 5th and is therefore, the Harvest Moon of 2017. 

SPECIAL NOTES: The Autumnal Equinox is Friday, September 22nd.

HOLIDAYS: Labor Day falls on the first Monday of the month which is September 4th in 2017. On September 11th, 2001, America was attacked like never before. We honor those who perished then on Monday, September 11th.  And we must never forget to honor all of the brave first-responders who also perished trying to minimize the loss of life. United We Stand!  Citizenship Day is observed on Monday September 18th, the first day of Ramadan is Wednesday, September 20th, and Yom Kippur begins on Friday, September 29th.        

THE GARDEN: Fall is a great time to plant and divide perennials and shrubs for next year's garden. By planting in the fall, your plants do not endure the stressful summer heat during establishment and have time to form sufficient root systems before the onset of winter dormancy. Don't retire the lawn mower when the growth of your lawn slows down this fall. As long as the grass continues to grow, it should be mowed. You can help leaves break down more easily by running a lawn mower back and forth over the pile. Put the shredded leaves directly onto the garden or compost pile.
