Garden notes towards the end of July
- it rained over two inches yesterday afternoon, in less than an hour, and half a mile away not a drop. I can't imagine what would happen to this part of the country if we had the rains like they had in Texas, with 18" of rain in 12 hours - The new subdivision going in by the golf course needs to hire a new drainage engineer, their road is somewhere along the way to Lake Powell, and you need a canoe to get from home to first at the baseball diamond by the park.
- I have a bug that kills Russian Olive trees. This is a good thing. I need to nurture it along.
- I have a single artichoke showing up, on one out of three plants.
- fried egg plant for breakfast is ok.
