The garden is in...tomatoes, peppers, green beans and squash. We are experiementing with some new tomatoes (Mexican heirloom) and a white scallop squash. The temp is supposed to set a record today...87 degrees, highest since 1907. I hope that isn't an indicator of the summer to come and that these plants can survive the heat for a while. At least we can water since we are no long in drought conditions. I even washed down some windows yesterday for the first time in months. The monarch caterpillars are having a field day on the butterfly bushes. I hope they will build their cocoons where we can watch a couple.
Granddaughter and I are off to Froberg farms this afternoon to get strawberries. Yummm...then 2 of her friends are coming to spend the night after skating. Should be a busy weekend for sure.
