The following points have contributed to my lack of effective gardening this week:
|I mentally sing "So long, Farewell, Auf Weidersehen, Goodnight!" every time I see this picture|
1. Poison ivy attack
(Thank you, Brave Husband, for weeding that nefarious corner where I was sure I saw a mutant spider. My spider-eyes obviously are not in sync with spotting poisonous plants)
2. Temps over 100 with 200% humidity
(The reader may at this point be indicating the humidity reading is inaccurate, but I am willfully choosing to disregard reason here. Going outside was equivalent to smothering myself.)
(Judging from what ended up in our yard, I am sure several used diapers mysteriously appeared in someone's else's yard. Extending my deepest apologies!)
Once I was able to get outside and check on things, I was appalled at what I found:
Eeek. The deer and the slugs and who knows what else have been having a hey day out there! There's a strong possibility they harvested more than I did this week...at least somebody enjoyed it. I still did get a fair amount of cukes & zukes though.
What did your garden give you this week?
Linking up to Daphne's Harvest Monday...
