It’s been a quiet, if extremely hot week here, with just a a few showers occurring here and there. While the heat has kept us from spending tons of time outside, we’re glad the backyard is mostly dry. It’s about that time when we finally see which things in the garden really took root (haha) and which ones just couldn’t make it. Not many of the little peppers that we replanted last week are doing so well, but a few are, and that’s giving us hope. We managed to get a lot of weeding out of the way over the past few days, but there’s still soooooo much more to do. It seems like every time we get a patch cleared another two pop up elsewhere! But we’re doing the best we can to keep the areas right round each plants’ roots as clear as possible.
And…um…that’s about it. For now, anyway. Uh…want to hear about how much we hate mosquitoes? Didn’t think so. Let’s get on with the pictures!
With more hot weather ahead (and maybe some rain), we’re hoping the status quo will hold for at least the next couple weeks. We’re on the verge of starting another major house project, dealing with our leaky garage, so gardening may briefly take a backseat. Therefore, the plans for next week’s post are fuzzy. Maybe we’ll talk about more recipes. Maybe we’ll write about composting. Or maybe we’ll discuss rain barrels. Whatever we decide, we promise not complain about the mosquitoes. All those darn mosquitoes!
