It’s finally here and it is H.O.T.
Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the heat. The humidity, though….. I could do without feeling like I could cut the air with a knife. Where’s the cool breeze? Where’s the relief with being in the shade?
I do my best to keep complaints to myself, or at least to a minimum. I prefer to use that privilege in the winter. Cause give me hot weather over cold all day.
Do you have a summer vacation planned?
We have quite a nice vegetable garden going, so we won’t be leaving it for an extended time this summer. The hot weather is good for the okra, peppers, and tomatoes. Mini vacays and mental breaks will suffice for us this summer. We get to eat yummy veggies though! It’s a good trade.
Ants Are Here
They don’t like the heat either. We currently have them in our bathtub, presumably in search of cool water to drink. They have been inundating the kitchen countertops, stove, and sink too.
While I feel for them and their plight, I don’t apprciate them running around my kitchen. You feel me?
While being mindful of our limited space and our food prep area, we have been using Terro Liquid Ant Bait to keep them at bay. It works like a charm! If the darn things would just stay outside……
I hope your summer is fantastic! Stay cool. Stay well.
Do you have travel plans, or are you staying home and tending your garden this summer?

We went on our vacation (a cruise in the Mediterranean) in April/May so we can also stay home and babysit our garden. Lots of tomatoes, a few peppers, pole green beans, melons, and squashes of many kinds. And of course the apple, fig, nectarine trees (and citrus for fall/winter) I like warm sunny weather, but not H.O.T. And I enjoy summer rains, but in Souther California, we won’t see many.
You look like you have a fun blog/website.

It sounds like you have been gardening for a while. I have chosen to not grow melons or squash because it’s a smallish space with lots of shade.
