Good morning or afternoon wherever you are, come in, sit, and join me for a chat. Coffee? Tea?
I would love an iced tea or iced coffee. We are in the midst of a heat wave. It’s funny just to think, a month ago, I was worrying about what the cool weather would do to my tomatoes, now, I’m worried about what the heat will do to my veggies.
The average temperature around here this time of the year is upper 70’s Fahrenheit to lower 80’s Fahrenheit. I guess Mother Nature is feeling a bit impatient about getting summer started. So she’s skipping the 70’s and 80’s and bumping the temperature to almost 100.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you yesterday’s temperature broke some records – the earliest 100-degree day of the year and set a new record high of 100-degree.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you I splurged on a gardening course at my alma mater. The class cost $200 and starts next week and it goes all the way to mid-August for one night a week. I cannot tell you how excited I am. I told mom about it and she said it’s a waste of money but I say it’s an investment. I get to learn about what can and cannot grow in my area and all the fun things I get to do with my herbs. I can’t wait.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you this year is my container garden take two. I started my container garden last year and it lasted for about a month. I invested in some self-watering pots and shortly after I transplanted the flowers, they all died. It turned out these self-watering pots don’t drain well so the roots ended up rotting in a pool of water.
This year, I have been using grow bags and they are working wonders. I look at these veggies and tomatoes and keep expecting them to wilt because I have the worst luck when it comes to taking care of plants. Instead, I see them grow bigger and bigger everyday. These are my green beans, rosemary, and lavender. I think they are coming along beautifully.
If we were having coffee, I would thank you for joining me in this edition of #weekendcoffeeshare and hope we’ll both return next week.
