It is another hot and dry day here.
I just worked out about 2 hours this morning.
I cleaned the strawberry rows and hand watered them and one row of tomatoes.
I don't want to use the sprinkler because I don't want to make the mistake I did before harvesting the garlic. The potatoes and onions are almost ready to harvest and are next to where I wanted to water.
I see the beetles are heavy on the rose of sharon shrubs. I will spray them later this evening.
We were out of bread so I made three loaves of oatmeal bread, it is a little coarser than my regular whole wheat recipe but we love the flavor the oats give. I used quick oats not hot oat bran cereal that is called for. That seems very like a push of their Hodgson Mill products ala King Arthur Flour recipes.
It is garden phlox (phlox paniculata)time here.
