In spite of this horendous heat and drought conditions,I've been able to raise a few crops. In the top picture is one of my 'Moon and Stars' watermelons. In the same picture, in the upper left hand corner you can see a baby butternut squash getting a start at life.
In the middle are a few tomatoes hiding in the leaves. In the bottom picture some of our sweet potatoes which are growing in one of my raised beds near the green house.
If I hadn't watered things we would be without anything, I'm sure. They are calling for cooler weather this week, in the mid to upper 90's :^) X.
For a number of years some of my former classmates and I have been talking about a trip to Wisconsin to visit one other classmate. During the past year several of us have had some serious health issues come up. So, we decided it was time to take that trip that we had only been talking about making.
Last friday morning we left in a caravan, mostly campers, with me on my bike. We had a great visit. It was extra specail for me, as I hadn't seen some of the group in years.
We arrived back home last night to be greeted with 100+ temps. X.
