I finally turned-on my outside water yesterday & gave the garden a good soak.  The valve is in the basement, way back in a tunnel in the dirt, plus I have the tunnel littered with junk, so it's hard to get to.  Before I turn it off in the fall, I'm going to get rid of all the junk I've got stored in there.  It's mostly worthless anyway.  It's going in the garbage cart.

Randy, it sounds like you get produce before I do.  My strawberries are still small and green, and you had asparagus long before me.  

The asparagus were large enough to eat some this year, but I gave-up watching for them, and they were hidden among the raspberries, so they were sprouting leaves before I noticed them.

My strawberries are coming on strong. It's a new patch, so the berries are extra large. Robins like them, too. I can't remember strawberries ripening this early--and it hasn't been a warm spring.

I lost another blueberry bush. I keep trying, attempting to get the soil acidity right and all. It's like me trying to grow melons (all varieties). They simply won't grow. Crazy and frustrating.

Yesterday, I weeded my onions and carrots, and put empty dog food bags down between the rows (to keep the weeds down). It looks ugly, but nobody else sees my garden.

My three baby bluebirds have left the box. I saw the 3 of them sitting together on a branch with the parents nearby. Cute. They still "protect" the box. I'm not sure if any of them use it at night.

That bird must have had a calcium deficiency :)

I took an egg out of the nest that didn't have a shell. It was in the membrane sac but there was no hint of any shell.

Thanks Spud, Bert.

Pulled a lot of cheap grass today before it started dropping those horrible seeds.  Not much rain here for a while now.  I need to turn my outside water on so I can give the garden enough water.

Daniel, I very much like your meditation garden.

Kathy, sorry for the tough time your having.

Kathy -- I'm also very sorry to learn of what you're going through and wish you the best.

I, too, have identical iris's and a rhodadendron, Daniel. So beautiful.

We had 3" of rain over the weekend. A tornado touched down 10 miles away! Farm fields are flooded. Fortunately, my one acre is on a mound, so water drains away. However, the water table is very high and my basement sump pump is getting a workout. My house water comes from the original farm well--over 100 years old. I keep wondering how much longer it will last. I don't know how deep the well is. It's never run dry.

After all the rain, I tried pulling garden weeds yest. It was too wet--soil clung to the roots and wouldn't shake off.

I also mowed half my lawn. The tractor started right up--a surprise since I've been having trouble getting it started. Battery and connections are good (after much work). I'm thinking it's the starter, but I'm no mechanic. It might be time for a new mower. The current one is 20 years old. Hmmm.
