Two days off and I got almost nothing done. Two more days and summer will officially be here. The next two days are promising to be hot. 95 today. 97 tomorrow. Let's do this!
I managed to get the first two posts set for my picket fence along the driveway yesterday. Big plans for this area over the winter when things go dormant. Some plants need to be moved. I hadn't planned for a fence or posts when I planted the Burford Holly that is right where I need to dig a hole.
I'll work on this project as time allows over the next few months. I'm in no hurry. Certainly don't want to move new shrubs in this heat. It's not good for either of us.
Yesterday, my first cucumber.
My first beans.
Castor bean blooms.
Lots of datura buds out there.
Cardinal climber has reached the top and continues to grow. About 1' per day is normal this time of year with sufficient water. The first blooms should appear in a week or less. The hummers will be all over this thing.
My last attempt at growing hollyhocks. I pulled them yesterday.
Doing laundry before work. Need to wash a couple of dishes from last night. Trying to reserve my energy for the day ahead. I need a new hat.
