    WEATHER. I read in the paper Sunday where someone said to keep our gardens watered as though it was dry there. I believe it was Daphne who said it. Mother Nature has kept ours watered very well. Guess the rain must not be general. Apparently the heat must be according to the weatherman’s reports. With the needed moisture, the crops in this area are really growing beautifully. We have started having some tomatoes to enjoy and only one hill of yellow squash, which is more than supplying our needs.
