We've got a busy holiday week coming up and I'm sure you do too.
For me, summertime always seems to get rolling once the fireworks go off. It's weird to think that we're also at a halfway point for the entire year. I was mentioning to SM yesterday that this weird weather makes me wonder if we'll have a long extended summer and fall or if we'll just roll right into colder weather as we normally would.
SM is betting on a long season. Me? I think anything is on the table. Snow in October anyone?
I did go look to see how June wrapped up as far as how much precipitation we'd gotten.
Now THAT's a lot of rain. According to TWC our average is 4.35 inches. We got almost 3 1/2 times our normal amount.
Mother Nature is handling it pretty well. The only casualties in the garden so far are the snap beans. For whatever reason they are not liking this weather and have only given me a couple of meals out of them. They're done.
Well, maybe I can't blame the rain entirely. The Bermuda grass is growing like crazy and has pretty much choked out the beans. I suppose I am growing grass and weeds at an amazing rate.
I'm also surprised that I don't have mushrooms growing everywhere, it's so wet.
Is anyone having a normal weather year?
