Ann, Jody, oh Mother Nature. Ann, you are scorching, I know you don't like the heat, Jody, you are as we are, rain and cold. We had a beautiful day yesterday and today blue skies and the sun be shinin'. It was outside all day, and today I will be outside soon, after I vacuum my house, ich!!!! I have to vacuum, the bedroom renos are on the last legs and everything is too filthy not too, whah, whah, whah....That will take about an hour at least, hee, hee, then......the garden.
Yesterday I planted some annuals in the gardens around my pool, red and white tuberous begonias in the gargoyle garden by the pool, did some weeding up at the apiary, worked and worked, my Daughter has now brought the mare home. Eeeks.....horses....again....now there is talk about another one we need to keep her company.....that will be in another thread.
Today I am heading out to plant my beans, yeah!!!! I plant Blue Lake pole, I like the prolonged picking season, planting the supersweet corn (sh2), and then the beets, carrots, etc., etc. Hopefully the sun today will warm the soil fast enough and enough, plain and simple for the beans and corn to get some serious germination going on. It is 2 weeks later than when I usually plant corn and beans, but has been too dang cold for any sort of germination to occur as such. The 80 or so broccoli plants set out about 10 days ago are going well, slow, but they will pick up too. Off to a fun day in the sun, sun, sun , temperatures will reach about 25 celsius, (77 fareinheit) no higher, that is our average lovely summertime temp. I wish Ann, that I could cool down your weather a bit. This 77 F is a really nice summer day temperature, it is always very comfortable. Have that most beautiful and great day, this is a a life we all love and it is so worth making that great day be. Cindi
