It’s the 5’th one in the same place since I moved here, and I thought I’d give this one a try. Well… they try hard. I expect version #6 next year. (sigh)

We’ve dark gray clouds, 76 degrees, and a very thick sort of air. As my buddy Gerry used to say, “If it don’t rain, it sure is gonna miss a good chance.” 🙂

I’ve been working in the garden. Yesterday I rerouted some Crenshaw vines, imported some topsoil, and sowed carrots for a Fall crop. Also planted a row of Spring Onion sets. These will produce a nice green onion in Spring of next year if President Trump doesn’t blow us all up by then… If he gets elected, I’m giving only 50/50 odds of us seeing another 4th of July… Therein lies the new philosophical question: If all of humanity is dead, is there still a fourth of July? Hey, spread a little sunshine, right? 🙂

Got the irrigation going again too. Watered a whole bunch of stuff, most everything, actually… The green beans are doing well, PW stays ahead of them, mostly. The more you pick, the more you get.

Was on my own for supper last night. Took a soda flat of our homegrown tomatoes to friends in town, thence to SubWay. ‘Maters were freshly picked and washed, BTW… These poor, deprived folks live in a HOA-governed subdivision. No vegetable gardens allowed! No clotheslines either. Go figure… I felt like a smuggler…

Today we’re scheduled for the grandkiddos. Looking forward to that, as always. Little Aurora is 5 months, she’s starting to “do stuff,” like try to smile sometimes… Hoping all are well!

Best, G

It is another beautiful hot summer day. It is 77 degrees now with a high of 92 degrees predicted. I now know why greenhouses in the area are air conditioned. I am not getting blooms for the late crop of tomatoes. I will have to be satisfied with the current surplus.

Interesting article on algie blooms. http://www.csmonitor.com/Science/2016/0725/Are-algae-blooms-becoming-more-common?cmpid=FB

That viscous green goo, which seems to be everywhere this summer, is not
actually algae. Rather, it is composed of cyanobacteria, which is often
called “blue-green algae.” Cyanobacteria thrive on two main nutrients:
phosphorus and nitrogen. Both are commonly found in fertilizers, and can
end up in waterways through runoff. Treating phosphorus in detergent is not enough. We must target both nitrogen and phosphorus to work effectively.

One example of the problem. “There’s an estuary out on Monterey Bay, where they’ve had sea otter otter deaths, Mussels and oysters, which the otters often
eat, took in the cyanobacteria, which is toxic to mammals.”

It’s currently a clear and sunny 56 degrees here, and expected to be warm and sunny today. On the agenda today, laundry and shopping. I’m going to be making a run down to a larger down to do some extra stocking up. Yesterday was mostly catching up on political news, goofing off, checking the news again… the usual. 🙂 I did watch parts of the convention, including Vermont casting their delegates’ votes, and Bernie asking that the rules be suspended and Hillary be nominated by acclamation.

Great shot at Trump by Lena Dunham and America Ferrera.

Dunham: We know what you’re thinking. Why should you care what some television celebrity has to say about politics?

Ferrara: And we feel the same way, but he is the Republican nominee.
