You can see the bees are very busy this year in the flower beds too.
I've had my spearmint plant for over 10 years, and it died over winter. I planted new seeds. And of course never saved any seeds because it grew back every year. I can't imagine a summer without spearmint iced tea.
Yesterday, as I was pulling more radishes, it started raining early. Like 8am early. The day prior, the forecast said it would rain late afternoon, then in the morning it said 10am. It put me back inside the remainder of the day. So frustrating.
Even so, I canned more radish relish. I had to be productive one way or another.
Using kale from the garden, fresh eggs, and goat's milk....
I also made more cheese, and did some more house cleaning. I even crocheted a bit last night.
It rained again last night. Rain is scheduled to arrive again later today, but with thunderstorms. That means if they are correct, we'll get way too much rain.
Hubby's sister is still in the hospital, but breathing on her own. We'll get another update soon.
The kids have an AC unit upstairs finally. It's been almost 6 years since we've had one up there. It registered 87°F up there before they turned it on. The temperature has been higher than that too. However, now I see less of the kids, so I have to keep checking their chore list, and inspecting their work.
I actually visited the library yesterday. If felt like a year since I had walked into it. One of the girls went with me and we both signed up for the summer reading program. I hope I can stay up with it. They are drawing names for gift cards and so forth. I came home with two books from authors I do not know. I'm still going to read my Hemingway books here as well. Another daughter is reading books as well. And to help out the library, we checked out some movies for the week.
