Really… could there be any more rain and “cool weather?” I’m still wearing shorts because I wear shorts in the snow, but often I must put on socks.
Good things: My usual June hay fever extravaganza has been delayed, and the weeds aren’t growing in an obscene way.
Bad things: Nothing is growing. It’s like Nature flipped the circuit breaker, and we don’t have any more power in the garden. Beans and squash surface hopefully and then stay in suspended animation or get eaten by slugs.
If we could have three reasonably sunny days in a row, a lot of pent-up growth would be released, and the plants could get big enough to fight fair with the slugs.
So we’re just waiting for that sunny week. I know you all are, too. When I bought a refrigerator this week to keep your eggs safe (the hens are happy!), I talked to the appliance salesperson about vitamin D, depression, and this weather. I think the situation is pretty bad if strangers are talking about vitamin supplementation at the check-out counter, you know?
