Since it is now past the middle of July and the above zucchini (which I sliced up - after losing it twice on the counter - and put in our scrambled eggs this morning) is the first one we've had this year, I think I oughta turn in my trowel and take up playing bridge, don't you? (Oh, yuck, I'm sorry, but card games are BOOOOR-ING.)
We've had one hot spell (and I will admit it was HOT) but it lasted only a few days. Other than that, our temps have been way below normal. Our dry spell seems to have been broken as we're experiencing a very moist period . . . which, granted, is much welcomed and I'm not complaining about that. (Right before the inch of rain we received a couple of days ago, we had a small forest fire in the area but it was thankfully contained and put out in short order.)
Perfect weather for peas now that we've gotten some good moisture. Yes, we are that far behind that our peas are just now in full blossom with a few pods forming. Wanna know what my shivering bean plants have to say about the situation? "Phfttthppp." That's bean talk for giving you the ol' raspberries.
It's drizzling rain as I write and our forecasted high for the day is 58 degrees. When we got up this morning it was 64 in the house and I said oh, the heck with it and built a fire in the wood stove. Cozy in here now . . . I'm fighting the urge to curl up with a book . . . it's that kind of a day.
As we ate breakfast we were discussing what we were going to work on today. We've got plenty to do and even some things outside we can easily accomplish . . . if the rain doesn't turn to ice.
