Is it just because we are getting older?
I really do intend to post every other day, and here it is Wednesday, and
it's been the weekend since I posted!
We have been having a heat wave, and I'm grateful it wasn't last
week while the fair was going on in Wyandotte County.
Next week is the Leavenworth County Fair, and Camp Grow will be
entering four birds in it. I am hoping the heat breaks.
Gardening still goes on.
This is my balsam, from my ten year old seeds.
See the mums on the right?
The poor zinnias.
The heat is brutal, and yes, they are watered daily, sometimes, several times.
An hour later.
I do not want to lose this balsam, it grew in containers on the porch at the old house.
Yee ha! A watermelon is growing!!!! I am so happy about it!
Next year, we are going to 8 bales.
I am watering, watering, watering. I am also picking LOTS of cukes so we will be
making pickles this weekend, I believe.
We are also going to be inundated with tomatoes.
We visited the Dogtor yesterday.
Lilly is still having old-age issues with pain. We are changing her meds around a little.
Jester is having trouble with vomiting, and maybe back to the doctor tomorrow. Right now, he is taking an anti-emetic We are NOT walking in this heat, they are outside very briefly to go to the bathroom, and that's it.
I stopped at a friend's to drop something off yesterday, and noticed this goose has beautiful blue eyes!
And this poor duck was born with no eye on the left side.
This lovely duck was with the group.
I miss having ducks!
