Wherever you are today, it’s possible that you’re preparing for some kind of horrible weather situation. Here it’s heat; we’re expecting 41 degree temps for the next three days. Yesterday was hot and humid, today is hot and windy – neither pleasant.
I’ve been out in the garden this morning watering the tomatoes and beans and other things that might suffer. They seem to handle the heat pretty well if they get a good water in the morning but they don’t like the hot winds much. Between the snails, slugs, caterpillars and heat I’ll be lucky to get any veggies this summer. I put out a bowl of beer last night and manager to drown some intoxicated slugs and I put out some apple slices as apparently snails love them and it lures them away from the things you want to eat. Chicken Little seems to think I’m laying out some sort of gourmet buffet for her though so I have to wait until she’s finished outside for the night. She’s already eaten every strawberry that’s appeared on the plants.
Almost ran into this guy this morning having his upside down breakfast.
