FINALLY, a day with sun, few clouds and temperatures over 75! It is so nice to have a real summer day again; I’ve really missed summer. It’s my favorite season and this year I’ve been jipped so far. But today was such a nice day, I’m starting forget the horrible weather we’ve been having although it’s supposed to be back this weekend. So we’re taking advantage of the nice weather while it lasts.
After spending a long morning at the park, we headed back home for a snack and then right back outside to our garden. Maybe “garden” isn’t the right word. Because of our lame weather, my carrots never sprouted. Neither did the cucumbers. My zucchini were eaten by bugs within 3 days. Only one of my tomato plants survived the slugs. So all we have in our garden are bean plants and one sad tomato plant. And LOTS of weeds. but I blame that on the rain since it’s been too soggy and wet to get out in my garden and do much weeding.
And while my garden has been somewhat of a failure, at least the raspberry bush is doing great! It’s fun to go out every few days and check on their progress. They are finally starting to turn red little by little. I can’t wait.
