So It Was 100 Degrees Yesterday

Only the low 80’s Today.

Yesterday was the hottest day so far in my neck of the woods. And no one was prepared or accustomed to this kind of heat yet. You know how I know? The power went out for an hour and a half at the peak hot part of the afternoon from just before 3 pm until 4:30 pm. WE WERE ALL DYING!   X_X

So needless to say I put off the weeding for one more day.

This morning it was a pleasant 69 degrees at 9:30 am. So instead of sitting at the computer playing Facebook games I got to doing that weeding. My pepper patch and the strawberries finally got their weeding. The little marigold seedlings got weeded also. They are doing well, still a bit stubby. After their weeding all plants were given a healthy drink of water.

You remember how Johnny Jump – Up went through an ordeal, he didn’t fully recover like I thought he would. No, no don’t be too sad, I found Junior this morning when I was wandering around getting things for weeding!

This just in… David was out looking at Junior and found 2 more baby Jump – ups possibly a third!

I now have 9 gladiolus from my first planting and 6 from my second planting coming up . The radishes are just being skinny leafy things. I did pick a nice round red one. My son ate it.


I transplanted two nice marigolds from starter peat moss pod into these nice clay pots and they grew into these healthy plants.

They looked so cute I decided not to transplant them outside. They have now started flowering!


And last but not least, David did some more prep work on the new storm door for the front entrance. It was cool this evening before it got dark. He sanded down some of the frame-work to get it ready to paint. He then had to put wood filler in and around it. Whoever put in this door frame must have had a broken level. The thing is so catty wampy, that is the reason for the filler.

  1. How were/are your storms? We had a wild n wicked one come thru last night. Started about 6pm and was just dumping rain, way loud thunder and the lightening was hitting straight down. Think that is my worst – never know if/what it is gonna hit and our greenhouse stands out like a sore thumb. At least the hail and twisters stayed south of us. Didn’t hear of anyone getting hurt – so you stay safe when this passes your way!

    • No wicked stuff here. We did get a couple of nice showers. I heard a couple of rumbles that was about it. North of us, in South Dakota, they got hail and a possible tornado touched down, property damage but no injuries. All the nasty stuff has been going north or south of us. We just catch the edges.
