ON THE BACK BURNER

June 14

I hear that some parts of the country are suffering with heat and drought and fires.  I think that we are living on another continent. I have my thermostat set at 70 and it kicked in today. No need to water the garden, it  is done naturally. I learned that June is referred to as Junuary, as in June/ January .I don't dislike  the rain, I only wish that it would rain with the sun out. It's the sun that makes everything seem OK. Today I planted a strawberry plant and a jack o lantern pumpkin. I have great hopes for the pumpkin, but might have to buy a companion strawberry plant for my one lonesome one. I cut a few rhubarb stalks. For the size of the leaves, I was expecting a greater yield in stalks. Now I really have to do something with that rhubarb. I've been talking about it for a month. Now it is put up or shut up, or buy a pie from Safeway.
