Happy 4th of July!
Or is it Valentine's Day?
The fight continues this morning...
Above, the Brandywines. Below, blight has hit the Hillbilly tomatoes hard. They are looking scraggly due to all the pruning of affected branches. Any bets on how long they can hold out? It's 100º so I don't think it will be much longer :(
Speaking of Independence Day...
This morning the one of the two baby doves took flight. It was more of a divebomb from the basket to the ground, but it's a start! Now we have to be very vigilant when we let the dogs out and give mama time to herd them under cover. They can fly halfway decently, but they seem to just sit there, I don't believe they know who the predators are quite yet, so mama is always nearby.
I hope to salvage some of the day today since hubby did end up getting this afternoon off. Not sure what the agenda will be, but I'm sure it will involve water, food and maybe some pressure canning!
As one of my friends said the other day, "Party Like It's 1776!".... hope you have a great day!
