Diggin' in the dirt!

We finally planted the garden this morning and now have it loaded with some good eats...or soon to be good eats if the deer stay away. Last year we lost our entire crop to the deer so Dad constructed a mesh fence around it to keep them out. We planted tomatoes, squash, bell peppers, cucumbers, cantaloupe and various herbs. I tried to help as much as I could but playing in the dirt was actually more fun.

We are also fighting the heat right now and seem to be losing. Our AC is sick and has been for the past 3 days. They are not sure when they will have us up and running again and it sure was the wrong time to be without AC. They did bring us a window unit for our bedroom so our room is cool but the rest of the house is 87! With 105 degrees outside and 87 inside it has been a bit miserable. I think it's time for the pool!

Yet another photo with my mouth wide open.

Watering the tomatoes.

Playing in the thyme while Dad planted some monkey grass, daisies and coreopsis. The moles (and the drought) ate everything we planted last year so we are trying again. This time around we have a noise maker in the ground that will hopefully drive them out!

We are looking at probably one of the best years for our blueberry bushes this year.

The flowers around the house are in full bloom. And we even have some apples this year!

A late evening stroll around the hood.

Loving my ride!

I have started using my magic toadstool as a walker and now push it everywhere!
