    Good morning. We had a wonderful time in the cool mountains with rain for an hour or so. No rain down here though. The garden is progressing slowly, so much later than in previous years, but no complaints. I planted a couple zucchini on July 1 like Downriver said. Maybe I’ll have a few squash by...

    Good morning. Happy July 4th. CG chores, coffee group, then a visit in the mountains with family. Here’s hoping the traffic won’t be too bad on the way home. Most cities have decided not to have fireworks because of the dry weather. I heard a few are using lighted drones. Might be interesting...

    Good morning. Community Garden chores, then home garden weeding. Some of the flowers have exploded in size, but will probably wait to divide them in Spring. Phlox and daisies may be dug out before then. Grocery shopping to do before our trek to the mountains tomorrow. Have a wonderful weekend...

    Good morning. It looks like a beautiful day to enjoy the garden before the heat sets in for a week. We mulched the veggies with shredded leaves, and will have to do that again in August. Harry, your plethora of bugs must be coming from your abundance of nature. We have houses, you have acreage...

    Good morning. Sunny and cooler, good sleeping temps. CG chores, am meeting up with a person who will help with watering the guys garden while he’s away. Better for me anyway. I haven’t seen too many bugs yet - grasshoppers, but no June bugs. Something is eating the plants besides flea beetles...

    Good morning. Just waiting for the predicted rain that seems to elude us. I need to dig up rogue garlic that has invaded the flowers, a definite weed that leaves it’s babies everywhere. Kind of like the grape hyacinths that I can’t seem to remove all of them. Downtown parade that I’ll watch on...

    Good morning. Another day with high 90 temps wears me out. Next week’s the same oven. CG watering soon that should take about 2 hours since I have 3 gardens today. Dug garlic yesterday from home, much smaller and will hang a couple of bundles to cure and give the rest away. Enjoy your day. Stay...

    Good morning. Sunny With temps close to 90’s. I planted a late tomato gift last night with another to do today. Lunch with the gals today, then digging up lots of volunteer garlic that takes up space. They will be way too small for much of anything, but my friend will use it for her Kimchee...

    Good morning. Dry and 50’s this morning. Usual Monday errands plus two of the CGardeners will be gone for more than a week, so I’ll water their gardens too. Tinkerbelle, I understand when you have to say good bye to your plants. This year was a difficult one for my superhots and most were not...

    Good morning. Yesterday’s predicted rain stayed south of us, maybe today the wind will bring moisture. The temps stayed a cool 51-71F, so I made lots of soup. Unusual weather for the end of June, but we’ll take it. Nothing much planned for today, maybe Netflix tonight after burgers on the grill...

    Good morning. Cloudy and cool, waiting for rain. The cold front blew into the picnic time, we watched all the geese scatter into the pond. Grubby Saturday at church to do chores we neglect throughout the year. The kids plan on coming down for the afternoon with their dogs. It will be a very busy...

    Good morning. I’m off to the CG to water, weed, and deadhead. Picnic planned for this afternoon along with washing more pots, cups. Rain predicted for tomorrow. If it’s cool enough, I can make soup and clear out room in the freezer for anticipated harvest. Have a wonderful day. Stay healthy...

    Good morning. Garden chores at home, more cleanup after removing everything from the patio while the deck and house were being worked on. I bought more flowers to brighten up the view. I’m hoping for rain sooner than this weekend, but not holding my breath. Have a wonderful Thursday. Enjoy...

    Good morning. Looking forward to the weekend with rain forecasted. I bought 2 more peppers on our shopping jaunt yesterday to fill in the extra space at the CG. Hubby picked out mild ones. I’m not planning on buying peppers again $$$. Time to work at the CG, then more shopping. Sic, Glad you...

    Sic - send your guests to the beach or some sort of amusement activity. The kids are bored and expect you to provide them with entertainment. It’s not easy being a host.

    Good morning. Cooler day ahead, no rain expected. Lots of errands today, time to stock the pantry. I replanted beets and beans, guess the bugs have been hungry lately or . . . In any event, harvest is a long way off. Enjoy your day and the earth’s beauty. Think I’ll plant more flower seeds in pots.

    Good morning. The rain went north of us, so the clouds have moved there, too. The casinos were busy yesterday with some guy talking a mile a minute. I just sat by the fireplace and read a couple of outdated magazines. Close to home we saw an accident, the car rolling over, a guy getting out the...

    Good morning and happy Father’s Day. No rain yet, so will check out the CG just in case. We’re going up the hill to the casinos for lunch and meet up with the kids. I’ll bring extra magazines while they gamble. Not my thing. I hope your day goes well. Celebrate being a wonderful dad and/or...

    Good morning. This heat everywhere sure does slow a few things down. I’m sure the peppers love it. Cleanup, weeding, planned for today. Hoping for an afternoon shower. Have a wonderful day. Stay healthy and hydrated.

    Good morning. Another warmer day in the high 90’s, so I’ll be watering at the CG early. The nurseries still have so many new shipments of plants for sale - wish their prices were lower, though this is a bit late to start a garden. The deck is done, at least the tarps and stain have vanished. No...
