Hot Humid Friday!

Posted on

We were suppose to have rain today, well it’s not raining; but it is hot and humid. I went out to do my early morning check on the garden and I got to shake my head at the fact that the peas finally have flowers on them. I guess they heard me commenting that I would pull them up and feed them to the chickens if they didn’t produce. All of my beans have come up, so pretty soon that will be another bed that will be teaming with plants that want to reach out and grab you… like the peas.


As the peas actually are producing now I am considering trying to plant the summer squash on the outer edge of where the peas are to get an early start on them. Seeing as how I have 4 unknown squash types already growing in another bed. My volunteer cucumbers are coming along good as well, I am hoping within the next month they will start producing flowers. Tink is going to be giving me some Tigger melon starts that I am thinking of planting near my onions, as I am running out of available space thanks to my mom’s kind donation for our plants this year. I will get them in though… somewhere.


I went outside this morning to hang laundry and apparently I stepped into a tick nest, they were climbing up my leg. So many that my legs were both covered. Because of this we are considering using the tick killer we bought last year but did not use. I don’t like chemical answers to natural problems, but in this case it might be warranted. I have put seeds for bushel gourd and luffa sponge gourds into the peat pots that didn’t make it I am hoping they will grow quickly.


Would you believe it took me 2 hours to write this? The heat has been making me drowsy, and I decided to give up and go with it briefly.


BE Well, Be Safe and Blessed Be…
