|Harper's Run in the county park downstream|
I decided to venture down to my garden last evening; I really hadn't visited since I planted my tomatoes on Mother's Day--they usually can take care of themselves, the mosquitoes have been ferocious, and the humidity means I start to drip as soon as I open the garden gate. Thankfully, the weeds weren't as dense as I thought they might be. However, my plum-shaped Roma tomato plants are all dying, even as they are loaded with tomatoes. I'm sure it's because of the incredible and relentless humidity. So far, the Big Boy hybrids still look alright, but they don't produce good tomato sauce like the Romas do.
Sunday morning, before the rain started and it got too warm, Kali and I walked three miles in the county park along "my" creek downstream of "my" preserve. The trails there are drier than the trails at my preserve, so we walk at the county park when it's too wet here. We'd planned on four miles, but thunder warned us to shorten our hike, and we got back to the car just before the rain started and washed out the afternoon.

To my followers, I apologize for not posting much lately. I have been very ill for the last two weeks and am slowly recovering, which limited my time outdoors. (Of course, the lousy weather didn't help, either.) Upcoming, Kali and I will be traveling to Colorado and California for 10 days, so I won't be posting again until mid-July. I look forward to communicating with you again then!
