Today was another hot day, where I spent most of the day inside somewhere. Most of my early morning hours were spent paying bills, picking up stuff outside, taking care of the trash, and harassing the dog. I went into town to pick up the mail, meet Bulldog Man for lunch, and shop at Sam’s Club for some basic bulk purchases to stock up on some items we’ve used. I truly didn’t want to complete a detailed shopping run until I have completed an updated inventory of what we have and don’t have, but need.
After watering last night, I took several pictures of heat/drought damage in and around my garden.
The corn, pictured below, has dried up and is pretty much deadL.
This is the second year in a row the corn never made it to harvest due to the heat. The first year in this house, a tornado came through and ripped the entire garden to smithereens, and did some roof damage. I guess we’re destined not to have home grown corn.
An update to my baby Cardinals. When I went out yesterday, I found the two babies dead on the ground. Momma and Papa Cardinal were screaming and flying around the entire area upset. I’m not sure what happened, whether another bird attacked, or a feral cat (there are several in the local area) targeted the babies.
|Empty Nest :-(|
Look what we have here, darn birds (Sparrows)!!! Evidence, they decided to attack yet another tomato (a plant behind the bird netting).
Have a cool and happy Friday evening everyone!
