    Wow! Amazing looking back at this photo now. Things are growing so fast. The tomatoes love this 80 degree weather and the beans are sprouting up so fast.

    two days of blistering heat and now a big thunderstorm. I hope my tomatoes and peppers appreciate this!
    I also hope this storm doesnt include hail!

    The chickens are out sloshing through the rain. Nothing can keep them inside! Of course, I expect the mid day siesta to be a good long one today.

    Super hot the last two days. I hope my tomatoes and peppers are soaking it up! Replanted the carrots and radishes, really hoping that the new ones grow better. Quite concerned about my sunlight, thinking that is why everything is a bit leggy. Might just take a new pic of the 'mini farm' looks much better now!

    Strawberries are up this morning! As are the peas and potatoes. Going to have to remove the row cover soon. Looking forward to the rain ending so I can work outside more.Carrots are being sluggish, going to have to check on them.
