Feels like a sauna ........


It's HOT and it's HUMID! With the sun shining and temperatures up to the triple digits, this feels like typical mid July weather.

Hubby has been trying to get the grass cut. He couldn't get started until almost 3PM because the grass was wet from the high humidity. If we had a hay baler, we could probably get a couple of bales off the back yard.


I'm getting loads of cherry tomatoes and more than enough regular tomatoes from the garden. I also have lots of green peppers that need to be picked. I've been eating tomato sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, and dinner along with fresh salads.


The squash and cucumber plants have grown out of my garden squares and are winding across the yard. They continue to bloom profusely, but for some reason are not forming squash or cucumber plants.


I just downloaded "The Cuckoo's Calling" to my Kindle. It was written by J. K. Rowling under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith. I'll be spending my evening reading.

Look at those tomatoes!! Mine haven't ripened just yet...but I'm waiting. One year, I bought a tomato plant and it was not marked correctly--we got a cherry tomato plant in error. I made salsa with cherry tomatoes. It was interesting to say the least. :)

Your veggies look so good. We had so much rain/flooding, that our gardens are done. We had a couple of tomatoes before it started, but now they are rotten. Nothing like a good book to read! Have a nice Tuesday.

Oh well, even if you have no cucumbers the foliage is really pretty. Besides, your tomatoes are doing great.

The CC book looked intersting. I downloaded it on my Kindle but have put it aside for now. After you finish it, review it for the rest of us...please. Dianne

I couldn't resist stopping by and saying hello as I am a native Virginian who remembers those sweet Virginia breezes!

Best,
