  • What a relief we have had from the heat this week, at this writing, Tuesday, we have had little rain about .1” Sunday evening, but others had more and yet others none.

    We are still watering our garden. And have been picking oodles of blackberries, and still many more. If we get a good rain the later ones will be nicer than what we have picked so far, though most are pretty nice berries. We like fruit juice with our breakfast, and since our grape vine hasn’t been producing the past couple of years. I decided to make blackberry juice.

  • JULY. Not a lot to say about the weather except it is still hot and dry. Hopefully by the time you read this we will have gotten some much needed rain in our area.
