It's been 100 degrees and humid, and when we got home last night, all of the plants were wilting. Also, somewhat oddly, it was quite windy, and there were branches down all over the yard. We went out back to inspect the vegetable garden, and found our largest and fastest growing cherry tomato plant on its side.
Sometimes I wonder if all of the trouble is worth it, when things just don't grow, or the vegetables you were looking forward to eating get eaten by bugs or large animals first, or when you have to spend half an hour in the late evening being mauled by mosquitos while you carefully tie up tomato vines. It totally makes sense that we have grocery stores. But then I get to see a turkey in a tree. And every once in a while there's the excitement of finding something new.
Have a great weekend!
