Got a short shower yesterday eve, some sprinkles this morning. Not near what they had been predicting. Anything is better than nothing. And with the clouds it is not so hot.
See some little tiny baby squash and a few flowers on the beans and some in the potato patch. Some nice looking peppers and the tomatoes are really getting alot of green ones.
Deer have DEMOLISHED the sunflowers... eating off the tops that the stalks are as big around as my thumbs... Never knew they liked them so much. NEXT year there will be a complete fence around this garden. And the rest of the property so I can have a couple of calves here and keep a dog so it can help keep the deer out of the whole 2 acres. There will be a TON of deer meat harvested this fall. They are so bold as to go walking across the back of the property just below the garden at 10-11 in the morning like they are taking an afternoon Sunday stroll. Chased a big doe and buck with at least 6 pts in velvet out the other afternoon about 5... I mean they looked at me like "so what... who are you?" I went after them with the pitchfork in my hands and they realized I was very serious and then took off and ran...
There are way too many in this area... like cattle in the fields....
We were told cold front by noon, temps drop to 80. HOT, no clouds, dry so I drip watered tomatoes for 2.5 hrs! They needed more than the 1/2 to 1" we've been getting sparingly. At 2....blue sky still. Then at 4 the clouds arrived, plus a hard, fast rain for 1/2"....now at 5:45 we have the grandaddy clouds, thunder and you can see the rains coming toward . . The ground is dry a few inches down. We need a really good soaker!
Didn't hit post!
But darned stuff passed!!!!!!
