Ever have one of those days that didn't go in the least bit the way you planned it would? "Course you have. Keeps life interesting. Or makes you tear your hair out. It's all in the way we handle it. (Handling it in the "better" way is sometimes more difficult than others.)
The good part of this day was that it drizzled lightly on and off all day. The rain gauge shows 4/10ths of an inch now a little before 7 p.m. More moisture (yay!). We'll take all we can get. Wish I could route some of it to those of you who still need it so badly.
Another day when I didn't get out to do the garden tour to blog about. Sigh. I will get it done one of these days. Just so I'd have a picture or two to include with this post, I tritzed out through the wet, wet grass and took these three shots.
This is a beautiful, healthy looking mound of pumpkin leaves. I can't figure out why it's staying so "all together" and refusing to send out vining tendrils.
The red kuri squash planted at the same time is running all over the place.
My experimental corn is doing very well. It's tasseled out and even has little ears of corn forming! I know this probably is far behind those of you growing corn down in the Banana Belt where you don't have any trouble getting yours to mature, but for us up here in the North, it's lookin' good.
Tomorrow is mapped out to be a very busy day. Hubby and I have errands to run in the morning including going to look at some black dirt we may invest in. The new raised beds we are putting in are deeper than the previous old ones and although we'll add compost to them this fall, some more dirt wouldn't hurt either.
Early afternoon will find me driving about twenty miles down the road to get some upholstery sample books so I can start making forward progress thinking about living room furniture.
Tomorrow night is Girls' Night Out for catch-up time with some friends. I'm pretty sure I'll have to fit harvesting blueberries and raspberries in the day somewhere, too. I haven't checked carefully, but some of my shell peas look as though they might be filled out enough for picking also.
Even if some raspberries would have to be sacrificed (by more rain that is forecast), that wouldn't be the worst thing because we still need the moisture. We'll just take whatever comes tomorrow and deal with it. In a good way.
