Randy, that rain completely missed us. We are dry as everyone else. It's overcast today but it's unlikely anything will come of it. The only thing I'm watering
is one hugelkulture bed. It has a volunteer watermelon and sweet potato vines. Those will go to the chickens before frost.

We did get some rain overnight, but I haven't checked on how much. At least the ground is wet under the trees!

Daniel, please don't overdo it.  I sometimes wonder if you haven't "bit off more than you can chew". You know your limits, I suppose.

Randall, you are not alone. I went through those feelings a week or so ago. Seems the things that failed to thrive looked even worse and everything else just dried and hot.  I too was wondering what had happened to all my enthusiasm of a few short months ago. I've decided to convert my little space to growing herbs and salvia as they are the things that have survived in a happy manner. Cool weather is coming and bringing rain! :)

It's very difficult to scrape your motivation together in such bad weather, Randall. I'd better post some rainclouds to you..

My garden just sits there, withering up in the heat and bone dry soil. Hand watering helps, but it's not the same as good ol' natural rainwater. In the spring, one can't help but be eager to get started. Now, it's the opposite. It all looks so ugly. I'm ashamed.

Joan, credit goes to Daniel for letting us know about the weeds. He told me and he was right.

Wascally wabbitts. They eat two varieties of hostas l grow and many other things. Keeping them out is impossible. On the plus side they leave large amounts of fertilizer behind. Which is how l know it's wabbits!

Kathy, chickens love weed seeds?! At last, a way to digest weed seeds. 

I understand what you mean about grandchildren. My granddaughter is a controlling sergeant and I remind her that life is too short to attempt to control others.

Kathy, thanks for the information about cooked foods. I will remember that!

Joan, these chickens love weeds. And since I cold compost l can't use them there so they go to the hens. The hens act like weeds are a big treat. They start the soft little clucking noise when they see me coming their way with a batch.

Barbara, hair is a good deterrent for deer. So is human urine. So if you are out after dark and need to go...!

Grandchildren are the payoff for raising there parents. Every time my daughter says'you would never have let me' l tell her she is right. And I usually should have let her. But hindsight is 20/20. And by the time we have grandchildren we realize how fast it all goes
And not to sweat the small stuff. And 90% of it is small stuff.
