Kathy, I haven't raised moon flowers.  Are they like morning glorys, only maybe bigger, and white? I have raised morning glories.

Sweet corn has tassles and silks now.  Maybe there will be some after all.

We got more plums and mulberries this week.  It's strange, now that I'm getting more fruit, I seem to have less taste for sweet food.  Hasn't gone away completely, but not as much.

The onions, that I grew from seeds this winter, are huge.  I've never seen such big onions.  Interesting.

I eat potatoes every day.  Now all of them are home grown.  It's a nice feeling.

I've never heard of a moonflower. I'll have to google it.

It's finally dried out enough where I can do some garden weeding. My beets were "hidden", not only because of the weeds, but rabbits love beet leaves.

I've allowed spinach to go to seed. And did you know you can eat the seed pods of radish plants gone to seed? They taste just like regular radishes.

Kathy - I love moonflowers. Don't have any here, but a friend back in the Midwest who was a landscaper had some wonderful specimens. I'd say they're magical but I guess that's not politically correct for atheists.

Spud, I like those stamps.

I have lots of blooming flowers and shrubs so I see a lot of bee's. Hummingbird moths are pollinators in this area too. They are odd looking and they love the moon flowers when they open in the evening.

Does anyone else raise moon flowers?? They're a small bush that get giant white, fragrant, flowers that, as the name implies, open in the late evening and stay open during the night. The blooms die when the sun hits them in the morning. They are spectacular under a full moon. They look like they glow. They will also open during the day if heavy storm clouds come in and the sky gets very dark.

Daniel, thanks for sharing the dosage info on epsom salts. I'm going to give it a try. (In the garden)

Kathy, I don't think I've ever been anywhere that was that humid.  I'm glad I live in a dry climate.  I just installed an evaporative (swamp) cooler, which wouldn't work in a moist climate.

Neither do I but this is where my family is. I walked outside this morning and my sunglasses immediately fogged up.
