Not going anywhere anytime soon
Note the flat tire
I managed to get the 21 tomatoes and the 8 peppers mulched this morning before our predicted rain - which never materialized. I'm hoping that by planting Early Girl tomatoes I can get fruit before the inevitable blight sets in. I look forward to canning tomatoes in September. One can never have too many jars of canned tomatoes on the shelves.
Vintage laundry basket -
Another of Mr. Cranberry's found treasures
This one doesn't include rubber rats, thank goodness!
I scrubbed out that laundry basket pictured above with a combination of ammonia, water, and a little Ajax dishwashing liquid, then set it in the sunshine to dry. It's fun to have a hefty vintage basket like that to use for laundry instead of the ugly plastic ones.
I doubt this is one of those
100-year metal roofs that are popular now,
but this one has seen many years come and go.
My happy rust-colored iris
So glad that June is here.
This month does not feel like June, for we've just started getting our May weather. I guess the real proof is the June bug that flew at my face and got stuck between my eyelid and my glasses last night as I was entering the house. It's a wonder I didn't break my glasses, the way I ripped them off my face to dispatch that June bug as quickly as possible!
