Rained a little over 3" last night, first rain we have had in over a month. It was so wonderful to wake up today to cloudy skies and cooler temps! I know that the grass sure needed it....and that this is the first time I don't have to get up early and water for weeks. We've been blessed with that rain!

Oops! I was in a hurry before we left this morning. Sorry about that.

To the other Martha though, my hubby & I were discussing your problem on the way over to the coast. Have you tried putting moth balls around your tomatoes to detour the chipmonks? That would be so frustrating! Love fresh tomatoes.

Patti, we had to hang chunks of bar soap in netting to our fruit trees to keep the deer away when we were in Mo.

My garden is going Great (except for my resident doe munching here and there.) Hubby is right now putting up a fence for me.

Poor Martha's garden, tho...

Sorry about your garden Patti! We are getting ready to head over to the coast so won't be on here much for a few days. Hope everyone has a good Sunday!

Morning all.....106 here yesterday with the heat index at 111. No use to complain about it I guess because that won't solve anything! I have been gone a while, I had some family issues that kept me busy and I just didn't feel I could hang out here. But, I did continue to lose a bit more weight, kept up my exercising and am now able to devote some spare time to Sparking! Missed you all!

My garden is just about a total failure. All of my lettuce, spinach and Arugula bolted from the heat and I got maybe enough for 1 salad....my zucchini, summer squash, spaghetti squash and cucumbers got white powdery mold and dropped all their blossoms...any fruit on the vine just died too. I was able to save the plants by cutting out ALL the affected leaves and what fruit was left and find a solution to keep the mold from forming on the remaining leaves....I do have blossoms now but still am not seeing any fruit. And last, but not least, I am at war with a family of chipmunks that seem to know EXACTLY when to eat my tomatoes so I don't get any. I'm pretty disgusted with my first gardening experience here and don't think I will be bothering with one next year. So, guess I won't be "putting up" anything this season....lots of time, energy and money wasted....I can always buy local produce but that wasn't what I had in mind!

Anyway, it's good to be back......and good to see we have a leader here on this Team again! Hi Patti!

Good morning! Weather will be about the same here without the humidity you have back there Patti. I plan to find activities to keep me busy inside today. Getting ready to go visit our kids over on the coast tomorrow. It is cooler over there!

It is finally warming up here in central Washington. Actually it is going to be a bit too warm if the forecast is right. It is in the 90's here today & supposed to hit 100 by Sunday. I was foolish enough to complain about being cold a little over a week ago when we had a high of 62. Now that wouldn't seem so bad!

Last year I made soup with zucinei and froze it. Yuck zucini dose not freeze well unless it is in bread. If I take out the yucky soup I will have room for Strawberries. Some times we are slow to learn.

Funny you should say that !!! After dinner I was looking out my kitchen window and I saw something white, looked like waving in the wind. Like a tag tied to something !!!
I thought what do I have that has a tag on it by my garden????
NOTHING !!!! It was a deer tail bobbing around as she munched on my tomato plants!!! I ran out with my iPhone and took a picture. See My Blog from Today for pictures.
Yesterday I cleaned out my pantry of last years tomatoe juice. Uh Oh...Call me Dan Quayle !!!! (did I date myself???)
Tomato juice... I had 4 gallons.
I cooked it all down to make sauce, with onions, peppers, garlic, basil and oregano.
onions and peppers from the freezer and the garlic, basil and oregano from my garden.
I got 10 Qts of sauce and some left over for last nights dinner....

Gemini-Sky, that sounds like a good profit on the pickles.

I am excited today!!! The truck from Georgia comes with Georgia peaches. They are very good. We just don't get that kink of good in the stores, here in Wisconsin. I am excited about the peaches, sometimes we get blueberries too. They are sooooo good. Now, what am I going to do with all these peaches??? Who knows, we will decide that later, first I have to meet the truck and buy some!! :)

Looking forward to fresh peaches,
Rhonda

Blessings are coming your way!!

Rain, what is that??? We have not seen it around here (SW Wisconsin), but would love to.

I have been praying for a 2 day, soft, gentle rain that gets to soak in good. The farmers corn is starting to curl. That means we are too dry.

We can't do fireworks in most places because they are afraid of fires. We usually set some off here at the house, but won't this year. We want to be safe.

Actually, they even asked on the TV today that smokers, only smoke in doors to try to help prevent any accidental fires. We are dry!!

Hope you all have a great day!!!
Rhonda

Blessings are coming your way!!

Hi Debbie and Everyone !!!!
Today is the last day of my Sweet Pickles !!!! Woo Hoo They taste so wonderful...
I get to do the last boil and then jar them...
My friend Becky asked me to do some dill pickles for her.
She has a recipe for doing them right in the jars...
Put a head of dill and some garlic in a jar, add the whole pickles (poke them first), pour brine over it, then add more dill and garlic and 1 tlbs of pickling spices, put on lid and process 15 min in a water bath....This is what she told me.
Never tried it b/4 so I'll have to let you know the exact way. I'll put it in the recipe box....
Have a wonderful Sunday and Happy First Day of July !!!

Hi Everyone,

Today is a busy one. I would like to finish a baby quilt I am working on, we have a graduation party today & I have a bridal shower to go to. There is also some paperwork to do to. :)

I have already done a 10 min. video with Coach Nicole this am. So, that started my day off right.

Hope you all have a great day!! Stay Cool
Rhonda

Blessings are coming your way!!
Rhonda

Good Morning Everyone !!!!
I made 6 qts of diced beets and 4 pts beet juice (to use in making Harvard Beets)
I use a 1906 Conservo Stove top Canner.
I'll have to blog about it so I can show you the pictures. It worked out Great and I can't wait to try something else in it...So much easier that a pressure canner and you can fill it with 12 qts.
High in the 90's again today. Rained yesterday (if you can call it that) just enough to make my hair frizzy. Didn't even register in my rain guage !!!!
Today is day 9 of my 9 day sweet pickles. Missed boiling yesterday so my 9 day will now be 10 day sweet pickles....!!!!!
Well, off to water the many gardens. See ya in a few hours !!!!
Have a Super weekend all.

We are getting ready to leave for the mountains to camp for the next 5 days. It has finally warmed up here in central Wa. It is forecast to be in the 80's here for the next week. Where we are going in the mountains it will be low 60's & 50's for day time highs and high 30's to low 40's for night. Would like for it to be a little warmer but know we will enjoy our time away. Have warm clothes & coats packed.
Your sweet pickles sound a lot like the ones I make. Our growing season is several weeks behind yours. Can't wait till I have stuff to put up.
