Knee High by the Fourth of July?


The saying says that if your corn is knee high by the Fourth of July that your corn will make it till harvest.   I think our corn is going to make it!  

I planted pole beans (rattlesnake) in between.  They say that helps keep the raccoons at bay.  I guess they don't like climbing vines for the corn.  We will see if that helps.




It's been very hot (nearing 90 or above) here for quite a few days in a row.  It hasn't rained in quite awhile too so I've been watering the garden every few days.  Your garden needs an inch of rain a week.  The best way you can tell if you are giving it enough water is to put an empty tuna can in the garden and when it fills up to the top you are good.

For over thirty years I watered my garden at night with no ill consequences.  Then I went to the master gardener course and they said water in the morning only.  The chance of fungus growing is much higher they said when you water at night.  So I've done that for a few years. This year I've decided though to go  back to my old ways.  My thoughts now are, if you water at night, the plants have more time in the cool night air to absorb the water instead of in the high dry sun.  Then my other theory is,  it rains at night and we don't usually have a problem (unless there is a flood), so why can't we water them just like mother nature would?  Something to consider. Gardening is an experiment that's for sure.

We are taking a small step backwards.  Yesterday, Michigan's governor decided to close bars in the state due to rising Covid cases found there.  Something about they can go outside if there if is an area but not inside the bar.   In one Lansing Bar there were 105 cases in one night. Kind of scary.  Not that it bothers me (we don't go to bars) but yet it does.  Taking a little or big step back is so disheartening but then again I know it's necessary.  We just can't go back to where we were people.  I think it's a sound decision and a dire warning to be careful.

As you can tell I watched the news.  It was too hot to go to the garden.  

How it's going in your state?

I've decided this past week just to ignore everything in the morning and take some time to read.   This means I ignore the mess in the living room and kitchen, ignore the gardens, and just try not to think of what needs to be done.   I go out on the front porch (it's mostly hidden), take my cereal and coffee then read a book for 20 to 30 minutes. I'm out there around 6 a.m. and it's just peaceful and cool.  It's just me and my cat (I can't figure out how to get away from him).  

Yes, I'm out there in my housecoat.  I'm a old lady with an housecoat on, ha ha.   I actually got caught this morning with it on outside when I took out a bag of trash to the curb.  Yep, the neighbor across the street caught me.  She just smiled and went on.  

Don't get me wrong I love it when my house is clean and I try to keep it clean all the time but I just recently realized who's going to see it except family? So, if a dish is in the sink who cares?  It will get done before the health department comes.  Well I hope they don't come for another hour.

Jokes aside, don't forget to take time for yourself.  A walk in the woods, read a book, relax with a cup of coffee, and don't forget to breathe! We all need to get away from the news of the day.
