And this is the beginning of the holiday weekend. I'm off tomorrow. No plans. For me, it's just another day in Central PA. This means I'll miss all those shoppers looking for a July 4th sale. If you're going to buy paint, now's a good time... or an appliance. Of course, many believe sales are store wide, they're not. Lawn furniture might be on clearance right now, simply because they need to clear out space for the next big merchandising event.
There are nectarines on my tree, but they're small and quite few of them have problems, and I'm not just talking about spots. Some sort of disease, I believe. I don't think any of them will be edible. This will be the 2nd year without a harvest. If it happens again next year, I'll cut the sucker down. I don't need a non-producing tree taking up space in my yard.
The cucumbers and cantaloupes have issues, too, of a different nature. They're planted in small mounds of dirt that came from a bag of topsoil I bought early in the spring. Well, besides the fruit, I seem to be grown tons of little mushrooms. Now, isn't that interesting?
