129. This weather is toying with my emotions.


Okay.  So, a few days ago it was hot.  Like, upper 80’s to 90’s hot.  My garden soil in one bed looked like dust because we’d been on a hot streak.  Today, the weather is in the low 60’s with a cool breeze.  Personally, this weather is right up my ally.  I will definitely be […]
