HOW DOES YOUR GARDEN GROW?

Well we finally got a little rain this morning. It has been so hot and humid here in Ontario. We have temperatures in the high 90's and no rain until this morning. They are calling for showers on and off all day and again on Wednesday. We have two large vegetable gardens this year, one for potatoes, tomatos, lettuce, basil, peas, beans, peanuts, sweet corn, and peppers, and we have another large garden just for squash, cucumbers, and pumpkins. It sure takes a lot of upkeep, but it does keep us in shape and it is well worth having the fresh vegetables. Hopefully after this week it will cool down a little. I judged a huge horse show yesterday, and it was smoldering hot all day long. I was exhaused when I got home last night. Can't wait for fall!
I hope you all have a great week.

  1. Janet, we've had too much rain. Been so hard to get into our garden to weed. I suppose the vegetables will taste yummy, with or without weeds :) Your horses are beautiful!! Oh how I miss having them around!! Stay cool
