Hmmm...what's new and exciting? Well, we transitioned from winter to summer in 3 weeks for one. We've been getting highs in the upper 20's (80F+) for the past few days, so I'm trying to get into the garden in the mornings and evenings which, unfortunately, is also when the mosquitoes are out. I'm not a fan of mosquito spray, as is evidenced by the lack of an expiry date on the can - THAT'S how old it is, 'cause everything has an expiry date on it these days, doesn't it? The spray has come out a couple of times in the past week though as, in order to keep working into the evening, a little spritz on the arms & neck is a necessary evil. I don't mind wearing pants (and actually prefer that when I'm constantly kneeling on the mulch), but a long sleeve shirt in this heat is a no-go.
I'm a bit behind when it comes to transplanting, but by the end of this weekend I'll be more or less caught up. The cucumber, melons, tomatoes, peppers and eggplant are all hardening off and will be in the ground by Sunday.
|Final stages of hardening off - don't mind the blur....it was a bit windy today|
