Well, it probably won't feel exactly chilly, but when the forecast is calling for an overnight low of 57 degrees, that sure will feel a lot cooler than it has been at night for a long time.
I wonder if this means our hot, humid weather is on the way out? We can only hope.
Papa Pea and I went out early this morning to work on getting some of the old raised garden beds replaced before it got too hot. We were only going to do one, but that first one went really well and since we had all the tools out we did two more before finally calling it quits somewhere around three this afternoon. (Nuthin' like working right through the hottest part of the day for maximum sweat production!)
The humidity didn't seem so heavy today so that helped keep us going. But I just now took the scarf off my hair in preparation for taking a shower and lo and behold, my hair is still damp from sweating and I've been inside for four hours!
I picked the first handful of ripe blueberries from our bushes today and gave them to Papa Pea as reward for working so hard on the raised bed project. They're just starting to ripen up now.
I'll be getting our first harvest of raspberries tomorrow. If all goes well, we should get a lot of them this year.
These first that have ripened seem to be individually bigger than I remember them being in past years.
I haven't canned raspberries for a few years, but hubby has put in a special request that I preserve some that way this year because he loves to drink the juice that is left after we eat the raspberries.
I'd like to do a garden tour with pictures to post soon. After seeming to do nothing for weeks, some of the veggies are finally starting to put on some size. I even saw a zucchini blossom tonight. The first one!
