It Be Dry!

And HOT!!


If you look closely, you will see that the corn is curling. It's way too early for curling corn. That's usually a mid-July thing.


The beans are fair to middlin'. They could/should be bigger. The clouds in the distance are just a teaser. Perhaps a couple of hours away they're getting rain, but we haven't had much to speak of here in weeks. Oh, it's not a drought yet and we likely won't be dealing with forest fires like Colorado, but it's certainly not good for our farmers.



Even our perennials are complaining. Our water bill is going to be higher than normal if the dry weather continues because I have a thriving vegetable garden and it's going to continue to need water if it's going to continue to thrive.


Lots of time is spent in the pool. We enjoyed a visit from our Washington State friends who have escaped June-uary in their part of the country. If you don't know what June-uary is, Julie can tell you all about it here (okay, I can't find it now, but go to her blog Herding Grasshoppers anyway and say, "hi" cos she has lots of interesting stuff, like the different types of twilight. Did you know there were different types of twilight? Nope, me neither)!


And then there are other ways to get wet too, while helping our garden grow. Summer we love you!!

  2. Hi Deborah,
    I'm not sure what Juneuary is but I'm thinking it sounds pretty "cool". Might like to suffer along with them.
    The pool looks so inviting.
    Enjoy!
    Hugs to all,
