Wet…

August 5, 2010

Get your mind out of the gutter…

Yesterday, I complained about the heat.  This morning, it is the humidity combined with the heat.  “They” are forecasting thunderstorms this afternoon and evening, followed by glorious weather this weekend.  But right now, it is hazy, humid, hot, sweaty and gross and it is only 7am.

And the garden grows and grows and grows…peas are growing faster than I can pick them…the teeny little eggplant babies of a few days ago are now almost grown…we finally have a tiny baby butternut squash on the vine with LOTS of flowers promising more babies…I never knew that tiny baby cantaloupes start off as hairy little fuzzballs…and over in the orchard, we are being inundated with asian pears, thousands of them on three trees…the crows are having a field day!  The grape vine village is so heavy with fruit this year that it tipped over…we really need to build a true grape arbor.  Can’t wait for grape juice!

    Isn’t the humidity just awful? The little bit of rain we got didn’t seem to make a difference to the humidity. Maybe we’ll get some more rain tonight.
