Around the House
It has been a while since I posted on my blog. During that time, we have had a family reunion.
Our garden is growing and growing. We have tomatoes, cucumbers, banana peppers, squash, potatoes, strawberries (which are doing very good for their first year) and even a couple of Brussels sprouts and eggplants.
I have had to pull up and throw away hundreds of baby Rose of Sharon plants. My advice to you - don't ever surround a Rose of Sharon plant with mulch. Plant it out in the open, so the thousands of seeds won't sprout into plants. I wish I had a nickle for every baby plant I have pulled from the ground.
And we have built a deck. I love it! My son Andrew is a wonderful carpenter (among other things) and we were his helpers.
And, it has been very hot and rainy.
What has been happening around your house this summer?
