I made my first order for fall plantings and trying to put the finishing touches on the layout. Looking around at all the spring plantings everyone else has put out makes choosing just a little bit easier.
I'm super excited to see the edamame is finally trying to fill out. I really dislike not knowing how something is supposed to be growing...is it ready? too early? Inquiring minds really want to know.
It was raining last night (Yah!) when we arrived back home and according to the news we should expect daily showers ALL WEEK! I'm thinking this should cool us down long enough that the tomatoes might actually set another crop. The tops are putting on new growth like crazy so I may head outside to do a little trimming later on. I can only hope to be so lucky. Those pesky pickling cucumbers are heading to the compost. Everyone I know around here has reached the saturation point of no return and I can't give them away.
The man who raises our local honey has finally delivered.I see Texas is now making him put fancy little shrink wraps over the jar lids...sigh. On a funnier note Gary was laughing at me since I was admiring the honey as it sat on the counter and what was I thinking? Oooh, two more canning jars!!
