No rain, pay water assessment every year for irrigation or they take your property. Blanity blank is a nice way of cussing, I have pigeons, magpies, not sure if the woodpecker is still here as I haven't heard pecking lately, robins, dove, starlings, don't know all their names. The stray dogs were back again, cats, skunk, squirrel, bunnies, grrrrrrrr.
Are you still getting rain Vicky, very hard to grow plants in hot weather without good rain even if you water every day. Do you pay for your water upfront or after you use it. What are blankity blank birds. They sound a lot like our black birds , medium size bird, all black with orange beaks, cheeky and eat everything and they flick bark out.
It is 90s-100s HOT here. I'm still digging, sifting, digging, sifting, unpacking and watering with my little trickle of water. I got a new thorn prof wheel for the wheelbarrow today, $50 a trellis for $6.44 and a replacement cover for my 4 shelf greenhouse for $12 today at Bi-Mart. Got a 4 pk of rhubarb chard at ACE 1/2 off. Found a rusty rooster with bells at the thrift store. Going thru buyers remorse over the wheelbarrow wheel but need the metal one fixed as it is sturdier than the plastic one and my sifter fits on it. Only 2 of the 5 seeds of the zuc came up. The pole beans are up nicely, only some of the bush beans are up in the boxes, along with the carrots and spinach. Of course the weeds are going gang busters. The blankity blank birds ate the blueberries before they turned blue. So will for sure have to build netting around them when I figure out where and get their home prepared.
Rain Rain and more rain for me at the moment, I,m ok I live on the side of a hill. I can see the flat country is turning to mud. The poor cows are wading in it. All plants are on hold, half in flower and waiting for warmer weather. My cold does not kill, just slows things down. Under my shade house I have been able to get seeds to grow during winter, thats a first for me. I have Chinese cabbage , and some flower seeds shoot.
I finally got my leeks planted out side in the beds and planter elephant garlic from my harvest this year.
Got my first Roma tom the other day and a few cherry toms as well I ate them right there, wow I love doing that.
Vicky how are things going up there. It is raining here at the moment and we weren't supposed to have any but it does a garden good.
Keryn, sounds like they are doing well but I would check them.
Elizabeth, I use no spices, and cook them in Olive oil.
William your beets sound great, I planted some in autumn and they are still going, but slow at moment. I should pull one and see how big they are. Most days for me at the moment are about 10c or 50f with the nights about 4c or 35f to 40f, not very much variation in day and night temps at the moment. Strong cold antarctic winds. But no ice or snow, we are getting about an 1 inch of rain a week.
