    Wendy I suspect it is more like a dye but they didn’t say.

    Charlene I was going to ask you if that was the sister I met. She has such beautiful gardens, it is surely in the family blood. Tell her congratulations from me?

    Del these men can laugh all they want to about how we fix things but…we get them fixed…My DH used to say I could fix anything in the world with a bobby pin, nail file and duct tape.  I haven’t seen a bobby pin in years so sometimes I have to improvise~ LOL

    Your weather is supposed to be heading our way tonight. We have had a couple of good rains in the past week and I wouldn’t mind sharing some with others but won’t complain…better to have a little more than not enough, we dry out so quickly here.

    Another reason why I miss my DH. All I had to do is mention something I would like and he would go out to his shop and make 10 of them! He never made just one of anything. Jane I love both of them, how nice to use something that was in the family for so long.

    We have had ripe tomatoes for a few weeks and I will never get too many tomato sandwiches. I have one every day and sliced tomatoes with every meal including breakfast. I keep a bowl of grape tomatoes on the bar for snacks too. I can’t believe there is somewhere in this country that hasn’t been above average in temps, we are sweltering here.

    Good Morning Leslie, Wendy and all….I have been over half an hour trying to connect..finally it woke up and let me do it. Today is supposed to be the hottest day so far, then possible storms tonight and who knows what after that. I am ready for some low 80′s temps for awhile. Working outside in a sauna is not fun. I have to get some groceries this morning before it gets too hot, have refreshments at church this week so will get what I need for that, and my dog food supply is low too.   At least I got the lawn mowed yesterday so won’t have to do that today. I THINK the Japanese Beetles are finished chewing up my plants for this year so I will have a lot of things to cut back and hope they bloom again. I brought a nice cold watermelon to add to the fresh fruit that Leslie has. Cold fruit is the best this time of the year.

    Well when I went out to mow the fenceline it is full of morning glories. So tomorrow morning early I will get the roundup out and do them in.  I will have to spray behind the fence along the corn row too that is where they creep in from.

    Just take it easy the lawns will wait until you know for sure just what the problem is. Prayers it is nothing but if it is it is time to take care of it.

    I have waited until the tomatoes start to ripen, cut the tops off and root them for late tomatoes. Never tried the suckers but they probably would work the same. I figured the suckers might help keep the fruit from being burned by the sun.

    Welcome to the board, I hope you stay around and join in whenever you want to. We are a close group here and we like new folks.

    Stella I will have an evenly manicured lawn she will eat every blade of grass! We have been supplementing hay every day because without rain the grass doesn’t grow as well in the pasture to keep up with her appetite.

    Wendy if it was a vole they eat the roots off of plants..so no way will he be able to revive that. I have lost several plants to voles, one day the plant falls over with no roots on it.

    What time is dinner I think if I hurry I can just make it. Caprese salad is one of our favorite things and when you have lots of fresh basil it is even better. I think since you have so much for dinner something light like the mousse would be best. You have me drooling now.
