We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Hot, Hot, Hot

I went for my walk this AM around 6:45 and I thought wow it seems pretty darn warm compared to yesterday morning around the same time. When I got back, my husband asked how it was and I said if you going on one of your 20 mile bike rides you better get out their now. So he headed out and I decided to plant the 3 gallon rose bush I won.
Ok this is where the digging of the hole for the rose bush turned into a battle. I hit a rock that seemed like a bolder. Ultimately I got this 2 foot by 1 foot by 6 inch pain out. Of course now it is about 80 degrees, and humid, but  the rose was positioned and gently watered.
Now I am in the house drinking ice tea at 8:45 am. I typically do not drink tea at this time of the day, but it certainly hit the spot.


  1. Once summer hits, all my outside work has GOT to be done by 10am or I'm toasted! Have a nice M-Day

  2. WOW! Hot here, too... I already watered at 7 AM and am dreading having to go out and pull weeds in a bit.

  3. I hear you about the heat! It was very hot this morning when I went out to my garden! I can't imagine how warm it will be later in the heat of the day! Happy Gardening and Keep Cool! Mindy
