Looked out the patio door this morning and the sun was shining brightly. Put
on shorts and a t-shirt, tossed on my gardening shoes (nylon mesh) and
headed out to water the stuff what's growing. Ducked right back in and put
on my overhauls and a long-sleeve shirt plus some real shoes. Okay, you
Yankee's better close that gate or me 'n Allen gonna get real mad. Must be
50 F out there right now, should be 75 F. Strong winds have dried everything
out but did manage to pick 5 ripe Tumbler tomatoes that I will have for my
lunch along with some lettuce, chard, and scallions. Nyaah, nyaah.
