What a difference a day makes. Yesterday the temperature hit 100, today it is noon and we are just barely 80 degrees outside. We will not come close to yesterday’s heat. And tonight they are saying the lows are going down into the 60’s. I won’t call it a cold front, though I suppose technically that may be accurate. But it is definitely a cooling trend. And the nice thing is the 10 day forecast shows the weather staying this cool. We’ll still hit the 90’s but more along 90-91-92, not 99 or 100. We have a breeze too and it feels nice outside.
Well tomorrow I leave for Vegas! I’m getting excited. I’m all packed, printed out my boarding pass, getting some cleaning done. Bill is not really looking forward to my being gone, but he has enough work here to keep him busy. I don’t think he’ll really notice my absence too much. He’ll survive.
I went to Home Depot the other day. They had mint plants. I’ve been looking for mint all summer and never found it. Since they had some I picked up 2 small pots. And with this nice weather they should do well, at least I hope so. I put one in the greenhouse and the other is outside in the yard, under netting, but in the yard. We’ll see how they do.
I’ve also noticed I have a problem with whitefly. I ordered some yellow sticky patches that are supposed to help. We’ll see, they haven’t arrived yet. I have the problem both inside the green house and in the plants in the yard. I’m betting it came from some plant I bought. On a brighter note I had planted some seeds from a tomato we ate. Those seeds are sprouting, actually they sprouted pretty well. We’ll see how they do.
