Wonderful about the ring, Cyndi! I sold my first set to pay for the second set, but someone stole that set.

What's a foxtail?

Subject: [CHAT] Summer arrives

We've been waiting and poof! summer's here. I hear it was 99F yesterday
although it didn't seem that bad at my house, it's still breezy which
helps quite a bit.
Pea plants were done so I dug them out. Total was around 14 pounds of
snow peas, I'm pretty happy with that. The spinach is starting to bolt
but I still have lettuce since it got a much later start. We'll have to
eat a lot of salad though because it won't last long in this weather. I
see proto-squash on some of the zucchini plants, won't be too many weeks
before zucchini starts, but I don't see as many tomatoes forming as I'd
like. I did pick three bell peppers! While they got beat up pretty good
by the wind after I put them out, a few of them still fruited and all of
them are now recovering leaves tho they have a ways to go before looking
lush. Corn is looking happy and my cukes and melons are coming along,
the onions look huge already. I meant to direct seed some basil
yesterday but didn't get to it.
I had to take one of the dogs to the vet last week to get a foxtail
removed from her ear. Second time in a month. DH suddenly realized that
if he'd fixed the weed-eater back in February like I asked, we'd have
avoided $500 in vet bills by knocking down all that stuff before it went
to seed. He spent Saturday with his new weed-eater so that's now taken
care of...but now we have loose foxtails all over the yard. Oh well, it
looks nicer anyway. But no action without unintended consequences you
know, he took the tractor out just to make one last pass and the drive
shaft to the mower attachment fell out and got mangled. I don't know
what a replacement costs but I bet it isn't cheap.
The best part - besides chores well done and sitting in my chair hammock
with a beer - was finding my wedding ring I thought I lost in the
mountains last weekend. I found it inside our sleeping bag in the
trailer. Maybe I dreamed I was putting on hand lotion? Anyway...woohoo!
