Currenty it is 80f or 28c inside house, and air con is off and doors and windows open. Hotter out side in the sun, I have just come from clipping some hedges and bushes. One was camellia sasanqua, so just about to make a pot of green tea and revive myself.  Then will have to tidy , rake and sweep .

My friend just drove his pickup thru my driveway twice so I have a path to walk or try to drive in and out.

I take my chances with serious health issue but neighbours to themselves. I guess guest dog not coming today. Cancelled Avian vet till Thursday afternoon.

Just looked outside snowing again.

Wow William 70 degrees on Thursday! Wild temp swings. We warmed up to 40 today but tomorrow it goes down to 20's again. That is new news. I love watching the weather here. Yesterday am the pundits were telling us it would rain all week but they completely changed their tune sometime in the afternoon. I think it's fun how they have named every storm. Even though most of them miss us, we sure get to see the most interesting clouds!! Nancy how do you do it? No one around here can dig much. Even my daughter is crippled up with sciatica right now.

Digging out today of snow. Might have a guest dog here for the day so slowly clear sidewalks, city and mine around house and off van and around where it parks.

Keryn I don't get powdery mildew on tomatoes here. If the heat gets above 90 F the flowers won't set and therefore we get no tomatoes. I don't have to paint much here for we got a brick home and not much to paint but the trim. Warming up for a couple days so I need to get plants pulled from the past season, I usually have it done back in Nov. but got lazy this year. Will be 70 on Thursday and start cooling off for the weekend and snow again.

William, I find tomatoes love the heat.

They get powdery mildew after the Autumn rains here and that kills them.  I only ever water the ground for tomatoes not the foliage and make sure no runner are on the ground.

I plant all the soft leaf plants like lettuce and snow peas and Chinese cabbage.
