(end of June post below.... post two for 8/11)
Nick and Elijah helped Homer with the wall... when was that? Anyhow this is how the fire pit area looks now. Put down the liner and rocks on top. So much better than that dirt bank. Still need to finish the wall to the left. He did start that the other day so maybe tonight after he finishes hauling fill dirt. I still need to do the grass hill, but it has to be cut down and our loader is loaned out. Someday stairs will go there.
Things are shaping up and turning green. It's been so hot this summer. As of now... mid-August... I think we've had 35 days of 85* or hotter plus all the other days it was just under that. We truly baked and I loved it!! Although I did underestimate how much water my gardens needed, but now I know in the event we have another hot summer.
I mowed the weeds around the lawn and it looked so much better. I still need to get that grass planted. Not enough hours in each day.
A big storm cloud went by, but I didn't get any rain.
Emily in the greenhouse. Again I didn't get my tomatoes cut back.
I had a few extra plants so she decided to fill some pots and plant them. Kind of cool for being a non-gardener.
Tonight it was a downpour of rain. It was hard, windy and cold, but they played on. Other than the drizzle the first week this was our only rainy game.
Look at the wall of rain coming at Emily's game. When it reached us I went to the truck. I was already soaked to the bone from Lucas' game and was freezing.
