It’s been unusually warm (or hot for most people) here lately … hitting the 90’s frequently. Between the rain that’s been in the forecast every day and the humidity, we’ve had to keep our windows shut and the air conditioner going. But there’s some relief in sight!
Of course, this relief comes with a bit of a “price tag” … a front moving through today that will bring unsettled weather, including tornados. This is another large front that is affecting multiple states.
I did a walkabout in the garden last night. We have two zucchini plants … one is looking good and has a couple of blossoms.
The other is looking better than it did even as recently as a week and a half ago, but who knows whether we’ll get much zucchini from it.
We have had a teeny, tiny tomato on one of our plants for a few days now, and I finally was able to get a halfway decent photo of it.
We’ve got several blossoms on several of our other plants, so we should be having plenty of BLTs this summer!
I planted some marigolds and basil in the garden while I was out there … I’ve read that they’re supposed to help keep pesky insects away. I don’t want to use chemical products on our veggies … even the supposedly “safe” ones. We’ve been learning, years down the road, that so many things previously considered “safe” aren’t so safe after all. I don’t want to take any chances with our garden.
No update from DD on how she wants those triangle blocks set, so I’ll continue to work on my hexies.
Have a terrific Tuesday!
