Strange times

The weather has been amazing - high heat, high humidity and high rainfall! All in the middle of summer. The rain means new plant growth = danger when the dry heat kicks in. But let's enjoy the green while we can.

A jumping jack (ant) scored yesterday. The pain at the time of being bitten was excruciating, and it takes about 24 hours before the allergic reaction really hits. Now I have a very swollen very sore finger; with the swelling extending midway down the back of my hand. That's life.

Yesterday, following all the rain, I harvested the garlic - a lengthy sojourn in damp soil might have ruined the small crop!

The kitchen garden continues to delight.
