Fairy in garden crop June 2019.jpg

I finally got my fairy out in the garden Wednesday morning. It’s been so cold, I forgot to do it.

Geese flying north crop June 2019.jpg

A flock of geese heading north went over yesterday morning when I went out to work in the New Herb garden. I didn’t last long, just a couple hours and only finished Row 3. I just can’t do much more up and down work.

Now I have red bee balm, I am giving away most of the lavender one on BuyNothing. I got the red variety from BuyNothing. I know planting 3 of the same so close will cause cross pollination, but for this year, this is what I have.

"Too worn out" is code for "time to sit on your butt all day in the garden with some sweet tea." :)

Not this time of year.....

Yeah, I guess not for y'all. It's summer down here now 🤣 heat indexes this weekend should be over 100. Real temps should touch 90 for the first time of the year.

My body just will not take those temps! But we get a few of them in July or August in the last few years... One reason I am out at 6AM, it's much cooler...
