A much nicer day at 92 degrees and the garden is growing well.  My zukes are still really small but I may be able to pick them tomorrow.  Not much exciting happening today.  Of course, one does need abreak now and then.

I did a bit of weeding this morning and a little more this evening.  Keeping the weeds out of the yard for the past few years is paying off as I haven't had to do nearly as much weeding this year as in the past.

Hubby transplanted some of his melons.  Lets hope we have a good crop despite being a little behind due to weather.

Tomorrow I will kick butt and weed, pick peas and such.

I did trim the bottoms of the black locusts in the front area.  They are small but growing fast.  They are trying to sucker and also trying to be multi trunked.  I want a single trunk so I shaped them.  Dead headed the coreopsis and the blanket flowers and cut off the iris flower stems.  The iris are already done for this year.
