Well, the calendar may not say so but summer is here, with a vengeance. Two days of 90+ weather last week and a whole of week of 80+ ahead of us. Always a threat of thunderstorms but pretty dry so far... Whatever happened to spring?

Goals or to do lists, anyone?

Were you potting up veggies that you started from seed or are you growing plants in big containers?

I bought my veggies (three tomato varieties: Brandywine heritage, Carolina Gold, and Amish Paste; and eggplants) from the local nursery where DH gets his mulch! They are all in big tubs because DH co-opted my raised bed for more daylilies! They should do fin assuming the hornworm attack holds off (we had LOADS of hornworms last year but I left them as all were parasitized by the wasp and that's a good thing. Sphinx moths are pretty but not at the expense of my tomatoes!).

My raised bed has been turned into a flower bed.

I know what you mean. Sometimes, homegrown veg can overrun!

First pick-up at the CSA was good: two green (Bell) peppers, two (Better Boy) tomatoes, lots of spring onions (red and white), baby Swiss chard, carrots, and herbs (chives, mint and thyme)... so I know what herbs to NOT plant if she's growing herbs as well

What IS it with rain in June in the Bay Area? This NEVER happens...

Glad to see that those forget-me-nots finally got in the ground! Not get that blueberry planted!

Well, if allergy season is enhances, I'm glad I'm not there right now --- I always suffered from acacia season in February through cottonwood season in November --- blooming tress were my "waterloo" as far as living in California was concerned!

Charlie is feeling quite proud of himself --- I think he's keeping all his ribbons somewhere safe! LOL
