ON THE BACK BURNER

June 30

After complaining about the intense heat, I have to say that I woke this morning , cold. Down to 70 with a low in the 50 's. Much more manageable. Still dry and my green grass is now yellow. It's not dead, I've been told, just dry. I watered for 40 minutes and it did green up some. I want to mow, but was told to hold off . I miss my mowing .My veggies are hanging in. The arugula was served at our Sunday meal, so that is all used up. My onions are ready. I pulled one up and it really is an onion at the other end of the green tops. My first onion. I decided to plant strawberries for next season. But I will need a net to keep the birds away. My DiL and son have a beautiful cherry tree, but the birds get all of the fruit. My DiL has bushes of raspberries. I am not a fan of them, but I ate one and it is was really good. If everything is better with butter, it is also true that everything is better, right out of the ground.

Don't quite know how this got to me but it was on the top line of my computer (not in email) But I really enjoyed it. I truly admire you.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
