Welcome Michael. I ate a couple of beans today out of the strawberry planter boxes, strawberries are hit and miss. Triple digits here so spend lots of time indoors just lazin around. Night time temp right now at 10:25 is still 90 plus a wind came up maybe get some lightning was cloudy all day but still 103 ahhhhhhhg too hot. I spent all day Thurs. lazin around so I could play in the garden all night til 3-4ish a.m. Came to city to clean office and a house tomorrow while my car is getting repaired. My apricot tree is giving me yummy cots too. But I need to borrow a fruit tree ladder so I can get the rest of them. Still no raised beds yet. grrrrr! Too hot to care. I planted some stuff in the smaller blue pots, arugala, bunching onions, maybe one other thing forgot. The purple pole plants look horrible along with some of the cukes. I planted some bush cukes in a planter box they are ok. The munchers are tiny little things w/2 leaves and all munched by bugs. Lemon cukes look a bit better and bigger. One other cuke is growing well but has bug bites all over. I need beneficials for spider mites and Thrips. Can't remember is sugar water was for thrips or something else on cukes, need to spay the jar full I made years ago to do that. And spray organic fertilizer, kelp or worm poo. I'll be 59 Wed and I fell 90 just want to lay around on the computer in this heat. My red and purple spuds are doing ok. Garlic made some scapes and are dying back. Don't want to even mention the poor looking tomato starts still on the porch that need to be put in the garden. I started a bunch, gave a bunch away and never got the rest planted yet. That ground is hard, full of weeds, needs compost etc. not at all ready for planting yet. Wind is really kicking up our there.

I have just tested my sun infused chilli oil. Could be used in cooking or as a heat rub for sore stiff joints or where more blood circulation is needed.  Another infused oil I make is rosemary, thyme and mint. This one is really good for infected sores and cuts, sprains and arthritis. Use a light olive oil , fill a glass jar with a lid with fresh herbs. Then fill to the top with olive oil, label and date. Sit on a widow cell in the sun for 2 weeks.

The tom thumb pansies, will hopefully deter the bunnies for a while. They would be a real best and eat a lot fast. My 2 little dogs keep all the rabbits and possums away for me. You are still the pot queen and they look to be doing well in the pictures, what season is it for you, I ,m guessing the start of summer.

Nice shelving , Vicky. Shook spider out of clothes wearing today, grrrrr. I hope I am well enough to get up to Mall today and then get home and plant at least 2 rows of 3 types veggies together.

Bunny getting bigger so it better not get into my veggies or it could be it's last one late night.

If kosher weed is a veg then my crop is great. Actually being in the 90s is frying it where I don't water.Mints are hanging in there since I'm trying to keep yellow sticky traps in them. I noticed the lemon balm under them is all munched. Grrr Got my new tub home last night got the ginger mint planted in it a little while ago. Also the purple potatoes in a plastic planter box. Don't know why I didn't get that done long ago. The red ones are in a huge metal water trough in garden area. Skeeters were dive bombing my ears last time out. grrrr
