August is the start of my favorite time of the year, Autumn. The daylight changes dramatically during August, the first day looks like summer, the last like Autumn. It’s like the childhood anticipation to Christmas. In July, we lost 1/2 hour of sunlight, in August, we will lose 1 hour, so the change is fairly dramatic.
Propagation changes for sure, and it’s a good time of anticipation for low banders. Harvest season brings the best fruits, veggies, grapes and hops in September and beyond, some starting at the end of August.
I’ve used June and July for project development, most have resulted in presentations, and for more than 10 years usually presented at Pacificon in October.
We have the solar eclipse in August and every day and week is a march toward some interesting equinox propagation.
