Well it was 109 here one day and 105 - 102 for the rest of the week. Your garden looks pretty darn good compared to Oklahoma. Hope that rain comes pretty soon!
Here's hopin' you gets some gentle "farmer's rain" soon and dat da drought you's havin' is over!
we hope so too...went out at 4:30 and put the sprinkler on those toasted squash...thought we'd be pulling them up...NOPE! They look great tonight...All refreshed........Ended up watering the whole garden this evening.
Tomorrow it is processing squash, cauliflower and broccoli for the freezer. Peeling cucumbers for the marinated pail.
Thanks for popping in and checking on us....Gma is doing a massage every week now....due to all the hose pulling and stuff. Tomorrow we have to try and water all the perennials.
Miss all you guys, kisses,mazy
Your garden is thriving and looks wonderful. Daddy panted a garden right before he came home but we have a feeling it will be nothing like yours is. Your Gma certainly has a green thumb.
Hugs and kisses,
wow...that sure is a garden there Mazy! And I bet a lot of work too. Keep Gma and Gpa very busy!!
