  • Sign up now for your county business license

  • Veggies in growth mode, so add fertilizer

    It’s official; summer is here. I’d like to repeat my request that we all ask for an inch of water a week.
    Gardens put a lot of food on the table and blessed rain makes it possible. Weather geek that I am, I just looked up the statistics for last summer in hopes of seeing a pattern to predict July’s weather.
    In May 2010, we had 9.22 inches (8.98 this year) and an average high temperature of 77 degrees (73 this year). By this time in June of last year we had 2.25 inches and ended up at month’s end with 5.29 inches.

    We lose hope, raise hopes, hope against hope. But like its abstract cousins love, jealousy and forgiven ess, it’s easier to say the words than to wrap our minds around exactly what hope is.
