Kefir -water type- and bits of other things

Got my water kefir grains today

I'm hearing the tree cicadas now

Haven't harvested anything from the garden since the green beans.  Squash bugs are doing bad things to my summer squash.

The area where the elderberries are is beginning to get shady during the day-  which is why i put the partial shade tolerant elderberries there.

I sprayed the apple tree again last Saturday if i remember right.  My parents took the kids for me for the whole day so i was able to get that done.  I've been spraying roughly every 2 weeks and it seems to be working out well.

Blossom End Rot

Well all those lovely German Orange Strawberry tomatoes all had BER.  It stinks. Oh well.  Maybe its the calcium in the soil,  maybe it was the mini drought followed by lots of rain,  maybe this variety is prone to it. 

Better luck next time- i hope!
