We have been having cooler than usual weather here in MN. Not so much rain, really, just cooler than I am used to.
On the one hand, I really like the cooler temps. I don't have A/C, so hot sticky summers are tough on me.
On the other hand, this weather is doing terrible things to my veggie garden. Well, I suppose that isn't really true. The brassicas, which like cooler weather anyway, are doing fine. But my beans are just starting to come in and I can't pick because they are soaking wet! So now I am torn....do I pick them anyway and risk 'rust' on them? or do I wait until they dry out a bit, and risk losing a later harvest because the beans have gone too long?
There are plenty of tomatoes on the plants, but without sun and heat they won't ripen.
Weeds are running rampant in my flower beds. I know I need to get out there and weed them, but that task always seems to get put off until 'tomorrow'. Unfortunately, the days fly by so quickly that 'tomorrow' is here and gone before I even have time to turn around.
Hmmm....d'ya think Mr. Barefoot would let me take a year or so off work to get caught up?
Whaddaya think, hon? Can I be jobless for a while?
