Shopping....[Fwd: Save up to 50% with this Huge Clearance Sale, from High Country Gardens]

Shopping anyone?  Big sale at High Country Gardens!!

It's still 100 degree here. I was out a little bit this AM, but too hot. I did get my rainchains linked to the drain covers on 2 of them (finally!!). The last one I need to totally pull apart the drain area and figure out what the people who put it in did, as I don't think there is a direct connection between the garden drain overflow and the actually drain out of the brick wall around the garden. Go figure??? Also, one of the sprinkler port-thingys is leaking, so it needs to be replaced and it is in the same area- so I may as well do them all and then hopefully never have to do that fun job again.

On the fun side, I have grapes on my grapevine for the first time ever!! Also, I got the great joy of watching a hummingbird take a bath in the very top section of my fountain (the part shaped like the top of a pineapple and where the water bubbles out). It was so cute- he had his own jacuzzi : ) I have lots of green tomatos and peppers on both plants. Jim, several volunteers of you tiny tomato you sent me years ago are growing like crazy!!! I have blueberries too, but I don't get to eat as many as the bird get. On the plus side, I haven't seen or heard the rat in several days so I'm hoping it is dead somewhere (preferably not anywhere near my house!)

So, I'm made a giant list of things I want to do this weekend, and it is only supposed to be 90 tomorrow. So, it will be so good to get out in the garden and burn off alot of stress. My mom is still hot and cold about her placement in the Alzheimer's unit. Today was a down day for her, so I got the giant guilt trip about bringing her there. Yuck! I know she is in the right place, but geez it would be nice if she could be happy more when she talks to me. I think I need to start calling in the morning- she's usually better then anyway.

Hope everyone's garden is growing well!!
