    It hit 90 here today. That was brutal. The good news is a giant thunderstorm rolled through right after I got the chicken chores done and not only cooled it down but watered the plants for me so I didn't have to. Score! One more day of intense heat and then back to the 70s for us.

    Hope your garden makes it out alive.

    Mid 90's, high humidity and afternoon thunderstorms. Went to the Kutztown Fair/Festival, ate lots and got out and home prior to the storms. Right now it's like a sauna outside.

    I took the survey and got to a certain part of it after answering about different feeds.... Then told me I was inelidgeable to complete the rest of the survey and would get no free bag of food. I know it said at the end it would tell who the quiz was for so I guess they figured I wouldn't buy there stuff!?! They don't realize I go to 2 different feed stores and if they don't carry but what they carry I wouldn't know about other brands.

    I'm guessing it must/might be regional as well... I'm probably outside of their region. It's the only logical thing I can think that might disqualify me before I've even answered a question... My profile lets everyone know that I'm on the front range in Colorado... [​IMG]

    Yeah, that first time click was kind of rude. If you clicked a second time they explained they had enough answers and were discontinuing the survey....not anything personal to the survey-taker.

    They really came in heavy and thick this year and in a great assortment of colors. The patch on the other side of the yard is whites, creams, yellows and peach. They're regrowths from last year with a bunch of volunteer ones (they grow like weeds around here). Anyway, some are spent and I'm taking them down hoping to get a second bloom AND collecting the seeds. Any takers on the seeds? I gave away 10 baggies of them today at coffee klatsch.
