No rain.

No rain in sight according to the forecast. My little weather station is saying rain, but unless something develops "out of the clear blue" (which is how it became an expression for doing just that), i don't see it. We have 50% humidity which will help keep things from just going crisp but it makes for a really sticky quality in the air.
Its about 76 so far at just about 11:30 am. It was 82 in the house somehow.  I think it stayed in the high 60's or more likely in the mid 70's last night.  It was 74 when i woke up at 10 am.

Not a whole lot to report on about the garden since i haven't been out there in the last 2 days.  I sent my mom home with some summer squash.  My oldest picked and enjoyed her cucumber- said it wasn't bitter at all.  The Pruden's Purple have set fruit...  I hope the Kholrabi will hurry up.  I want to let the volunteer tomatoes to have that space.

I also wish the potatoes would be ready already.  I can barely make it through the row between them and the tomatoes.

With all the weeds this year, the garden feels very crowded,  i feel uncomfortable just looking at it.

We've had rain, lots of it, and a plague of slugs to follow!

Yes, i read that in your blog- truly a plague!
I had snails pretty badly last year, what cabbages the woodchucks didn't eat were bored through by the snails.
But nothing compared to what is happening over your way.
Weather is usually diverse, but this year is very odd.
