It's Cooling Down!
Although a lack of rain is getting me a bit worried, I am keeping things watered. The green onions looked terrible, but I found enough to whip up another sweet potato salad to go with our dinner (or be the dinner since the temperature was 91 degrees out).
The temperature is cooling down for us, but no rain yet.
Not sure if I'll get a root cellar this year. Although the lack of rain would make it conducive to get it built, Hubby's long hours are a bit overwhelming.
Shell peas are starting to come one. I am picking a few here and there and they look wonderful.
I'm thrilled with my bathroom scale this week. For three years I struggled to keep extra weight off, and now I'm down again. That's a total of 18.6 pounds since Hubby bought the Harley, and a grand total of 29.6 pounds from my heaviest of three years ago. Could it be the brazil nuts? Overall healthy eating? A combination of everything and exercise? I don't know, but I'm sticking with it. My nails are going crazy too.
