    Take a lantern along, and something to occupy your hands and mind. It seems much longer than it truly is. Living in "Tornado Alley " we cope with it on a yearly basis!

    Sounds good. I guess I need to see about planting some seeds for fall also.

    Thanks for the planting motivation. I'm always thinking I should get some seeds in the ground during July, but never do, b/c there's no room in the garden. Time to do some pot planting. Did get some Oregano, Sage, and Russian sage planted today, along with some Harlequin seedling Dahlias.

    Picked squash and froze tomatoes today. My running lima beans are growing well...no blossoms yet and sweet potato vines look good. Just hope I have some potatoes down there.

    I picked ocer 10 pounds of tomatoes yesterday because I believe deer brushed thru and the heavy branches just broke
    so I cut most of them up and started making Sweet Green Tomato Pickles. In about 15 minutes I'll give them their first wash off from the lime soak

    I also picked one Jubilee tomato

    Picked more maters. Going to make spaghetti sauce tomorrow. Sad though. All of my sunflower heads were girdled by something. Ugh.
