Hope to get up early and water veggie garden. Not to happy with Canada Post, they want to abstruct my view with hideous multi-mail boxes. They said across the street. I am on corner so they want to put where view abstructed. Someone does not know how to read. Along with that January they are putting postage up again,GRRRRRRRRRR.

Gardens doing well, keeping some wildflowers for honey and bumble bee sakes.

We had an other huge cloud go thru and pummel us with rain for a short while today. They come with loud thunder. I didn't get to do any gardening today as mowed the school lawn and went to CAC for help. Still may go out tonight to find somewhere to plant zuc and hope the critters don't like to eat it.

Emergency doctor says to stay out of heat. Missed two days of watering veggie seeds, hope they are alright and hope some rain on the way.

Vicky sounds like you have a interesting garden. I would love to grow some blueberries.

1am to 5am at hospital Emergency early this morning.

My cukes are blooming, I too need to figure out where to plant Zuc. One of my blueberry plants died wonder what was in that blue barrel thing I put it in. Don't remember but thought I drilled holes in the bottom, must have been too hot for them in pots maybe. They got moved from the wine barrels to plastic pots, smaller space and way hotter this year. Also the bugs are after them. Oh did have at least one praying mantis, she is getting big from eating bugs. Hope she eats those damn little ants, they keep digging around the herbs and Johnny Jump Ups and killing the plants. They were trying to kill the original Roman Chamomile that the critters didn't find, put it in a pot. Need to put the coffee grounds in them. Need to put more soil around the spud plants too. And mow lawn at the school, didn't get home from cleaning the office til !:30 this morning. Computer says 83 today.

Don looking good wish my blueberries looked that good. Oh cooked up my beans yesterday. Should plant more and goop up the blue traps I made with poster paper and snack bags.

I know, I was at hospital early this morning due to heat and infection. So have dehumidifiers and ceiling fans on.

Bed rest.

Looks good Don I have been eating cukes for a couple weeks and picked my first spaghetti squash on Friday and had some on Saturday, turned out great. I need to plant some Zuc. squash today for I had bad seed so I'll try new packet.

   It has been a cucumber, cherry tomato, and blueberry picking kind of morning!

You girls need to be careful with the heat, it can and will have no mercy we need not to have a heat stroke. Care a bottle of water with you when you go outside and stop and rest a few under the shade. It is supposed to be 98 here with a heat index of 105 so that means I'll be in by 10 am today. I am going to go down and water the beds now so have a great gardening day.

Today I became not well. I think it is the heat. Had a few cold showers. Earlier lost all my food and liquid, but starting to hold water. It has been 90F cannot see my metric temperature.

Nancy I,m glad some our guys are going to help with the wild fires, its a long summer with the air full of smoke , it blocks out the sun but its still hot. When theres fires around, I,m glad I live in town and not on the land, if a fire starts up near a town you get a warning to get out a lot quicker.

Magnificent Mountain Laurels

"Thanks Matthew. I love them, too. They are VERY slow growing. I planted the ones we have as tiny little plants (maybe 1 foot tall) about 10 years ago and they are finally nice-sized and are filled with blooms in the spring. It was definitely worth…"
