Gardening?

Is anyone gardening? Not a lot of gardening going on here! It has just been too hot! I planned on getting out early to take care of some basic chores and other things got in the way. The heat really limits the amount of outside time available these days. I believe I may take up the folk style way and start gardening by the moon. I have a book about that subject and it is very interesting. I remember my mom being out in the garden at night, she said she was gardening by the moon, I always thought she just wanted some alone time, maybe it was both. I have some vintage copies of the "Old Farmers Almanac" and they speak of doing certain gardening task by the moon to get the best results. If the temps don't start to lower soon I will have to join the opossums for some late night gardening. The up side, I have been getting a lot of inside things accomplished, like sorting through all the new vintage christmas items I have accumulated this year so far. We will be participating in three shows in October and I will have vintage Christmas and Halloween for sale. Check back for show dates and more details and be sure to enjoy summer, even the heat, because before you know it we will be grabbing our coats again.~Jacque

We've had a bit of respite from all the heat, but it still is humid and muggy. It's rained everyday at some point, making any big garden project impossible (not that I have one anyway). It's giving me time to do some indoor projects I'd been wanting to do, too. I guess now I'll even get a bit of housework done:( I couldn't stand those 100 degree temps you're having-whew! Karen
