It has been hot. Really hot. Today we topped out at a sultry 93 degrees. Right now as I write this it is 903 pm and we have dropped to a pleasant 84 degrees.
To combat the heat we do fun things. This is one of G's sprinklers.
It has little misters(I totally just made that word up right now) on the side and then every minute or so it blows its top. This part makes G laugh every time.
He likes the idea of a sprinkler, but insists that he doesnt want to get wet in the sprinkler. So, he goes in with his shield to keep himself dry.
But wait, its also a rain barrel. What? You cant tell the difference?
And this is a wet Darby. She likes to get wet in the sprinkler.
Alright, on to the garden. Please note my interim garden shoes.
I am growing, what I hope will turn out to be a sunflower house, for G. Look past all the weeds, please.
And these little sunflowers are in a delicate phase right now. That means that the "big" weed eater is not allowed near them. So, I must resort to special tools.
But look how pretty it looks when Im all done!
On to the tomatoes.
Yay! Little maters.
And little basils.
Taters and red peppers.
Green beans, edamame, and cukes.
Flowering green beans.
And great big pumpkins.
With little bitty pumpkins.
