  1. 98 today with heat index 108...that spells miserable! I wash clothes and hang them out one day at a time. House dresses are a must, until I leave the house. Hubby checked garden this morning on his way to work and everything seems to be doing fine just watering every other day. Dusting with the baby powder seems to be keeping insects at bay. I'm thinking that maybe using baking soda with some peppermint and lavender essential oil might work and be cheaper?

  3. Did work clothes laundry and they're on the line. Changed bedding. Glad we have the window a/c but it only removes humidity from that room )our bedroom) so the rest of the house is "tolerable" until I do some chores. Then I'm soaked! So all I wear during day is my house dresses. Then it's cool showers! Hubby checked garden and everything seems to be doing fine just watering every other day.

  4. Use a long tong fork to hold your produce...
  5. Plugged in the de-humidifier...need it since we're operating on window a/c with furnace fan (no heat) to circulate cool air.
  6. We have the Son Oven, and love it. Just haven't used it this year, since it's at the homestead and we don't want to leave it sitting out while we're not there.
  7. Don't like canning in this hot and humid weather, but these hot peppers don't need to be pressure canned. This is only the first picking, and there's more coming.
  8. Not a lot, but they're HOT! Even through my gloves I felt the warmth! We don't eat them, I just use them as a seasoning. Fresh from the garden. There's more coming on, this is only the first batch.
  9. Removed rings, washed jars and labeled...HOT pepper! Even through my gloves my hands got warm!
  10. Our raspberries have thorns, our blackberrie do not...but they're not the wild plants.
  11. Wish we had a way to send you a video of her playing with us in the water hose sprayer!
  12. The garden's doing pretty good, but still fighting japanese beetles and ??? Finally resorted to dusting with DE to keep the field crickets off but not sure it has any effect on the JB. The tomato plants are having a hard time too. You'll see the droopy eggplant buckets, but they perk up when watered. The watermelon and pumpkin plants are sprawling good.The little spaghetti squash was the experiment...that I took a seed from one we ate, washed it and stuck it some dirt to get it started. Then planted the seedling in the bucket...watcha know! LOL
  13. Been doing some pickin! Enjoyed eggplant parmesan, green beans, a small tomato, an Anaheim pepper, and a small hamburger . A garden fresh meal!
  14. We've been in the upper 90's with heat indexes of 105+ and no rain for several weeks. Having to water the garden every day to barely keep stuff alive.
