We just had six inches of rain! — 4 Comments

  1. Jackie, send some of that rain over to New Mexico! We are going through the largest fire in the state’s history, with the monsoon’s not coming yet. We sure could use some rain! Is the pig’s weed and lamb’s quarter weeds that grow? I sure would like to eat them instead of throwing them in the compost! Take care, and contragulations on the wedding!

  2. Your peonies are beautiful. Mine are done blooming about 2 weeks ago here in lower Michigan, about 50 miles north of the Indiana border area 5. I remember when I wanted them to bloom about a week earlier in June so I could have a bouquet for the kids graduation parties but it never happened. Back then the graduation parties were usually held after the graduation exercises the first Thurs in June. Our veg gardens are late this year due to the weather. Mine was planted 3-4 weeks later than last year but it is now coming along and looking fairly good. I am having trouble with bugs this year though and had to spray them. I am expectantly waiting to see who wins the beaver contest. Keep us posted.

  3. Your flowers are beautiful! I am so excited that my flowers, shasta daisies, cone flowers and blanket flowers, are finally going to bloom this year! I raised them from seed last Spring, planted them in June and they grew well but, no blooms last year. Having only grown veggies from seed before, I had no idea how long it would take the perennials to fully develop. I have a whole new respect for those 4″ pots at the nursery!

  4. Can you post a picture of the pigs weed and lamb quarter weeds so we can eat them too? We had that kind of rain in WI too. I like moisture but not that much! Thanks Cindy
