Mount Hood

For those of you baking in this sweltering midwest weather, here’s a photo of Mount Hood poking through the clouds that I snapped as we were flying into Portland, Oregon last week. Wish I was closer to that mountain right now!!

Stay cool…

Garden Update

The plants are pretty well established at this point. I compared photos I took at this time last year of my garden and determined the plants were more filled out and taller last year. I’m theorizing that due to the extreme temperature fluctuations and heavy rains we’ve been experiencing this year, the plants aren’t growing as well. Their growth appears to be stunted and they are spindly. The temperatures are now consistently in the upper 80’s to lower 90’s, however we continue to have heavy rains. I’m hoping that the garden will be allowed to dry out a bit so the plants can achieve a normal growth pattern. Below are some photos taken on June 10th of this year. Click this link to see photos from last year at approximately this time.
