Well, it seems we're back to having our usual North Carolina Summer.
A few weeks of 100 degree temps are pretty typical. And now we're into the "soupy days of Summer." Imagine wrapping yourself in a warm, wet blanket and try breathing through that.
We're in a pattern of 90 degree weather with rain everyday. Nothing really dries out. The grass is high, the garden is boggy. But we need the rain and it does make it nice for pulling weeds.
Also nice for growing mold. Earlier this spring, I posted about having to "bleach" the house in order to remove the mold off the siding. A lot of you out there have never heard of having to do that. It's quite a problem around here though. I should take some pictures of some of the houses around here that have got a visible green mold growing thick on the siding of their houses. ICK! (I'd be freaking out if I saw that on my house.)
Anyway, I went out this morning to check out my world and thought I'd take the camera with me and give ya'll a garden tour.
I had to laugh though...When I pulled these pictures up on the computer, I thought "What the heck is that smear? That fogginess?"
It's SO warm and humid out there that the camera lens fogged up with condensation.
We're still getting beans and the monster Luffa plant has finally put out a couple of blooms!
I hope to head out in a bit and do some gardening. Hopefully I'll move quick enough that the bugs don't get me and the mold won't start growing.
