cuttings from this morning
I am not sure when late summer officially starts. Yesterday’s thunderstorms knocked over a loaded tomato plant, but that could have happened in June.. 5:30 am is not as light as it used to be and the night-time “lows” are pushing the sultry mid 70s. Large swaths of creeping Bermuda grass have had an ugly haze of seed heads since Wednesday…and of course, I couldn’t’ mow them down until Sunday. Despite the long dog days-stretch of summer ahead of us, I am not looking to cooler weather just yet. I am still enjoying the summer flowers in my perennial border and my promising crop of tomatoes, baby watermelons, and squash. But maybe I will change my mind this weekend. Word has it that the triple digits are due.
