I love that the lady bugs have found the potatoes. Thanks Potato Lady!
Yesterday I gave up when the temperature hit 91.3*. Today is supposed to be a little cooler but it's already hot our there.
A rose by any other name is still "that stupid wild rose."
This has been my nemesis for the last week or so. I've been working on clearing but I just can't get ahead of this wild rose - or the poison ivy. But I'm giving it a heck of a fight. I'm all scratched up tho. And I'm all scratchy. Ugh!
Soon will become a salad of love.
In the meantime, my broccoli empire is starting to flower - so I'm taking up a bunch of it. I'll use Pickyourown.com's instructions on how to blanch then freeze fresh broccoli. If there is any left. It is a fact that I'm head over heels for that broccoli bacon layer salad. I have a fantastic row of lettuce that is really producing - so it's fun that just about everything in this salad comes from my yard.
Doesn't everyone love catmint?
I'm heading out but first I have to go and check on my pan of bacon for today's salad. I've got my weather radar up tho - we might get some storms firing up later today. The rain will be here in the overnight. If you are in the Mid West be sure to keep a weather eye to the sky!
Happy Friday everyone!
