The Heat is on…for one week
Like Two and WIN! continues through May 12th - 5/6/2012

In case you hadn’t noticed, it’s hot out there. The forecast through Sunday looks like more of the same. Mid-eighties to near 90 degrees. There is hope on the horizon. The weather for Tuesday cools dramatically to the mid to upper seventies; with an increased chance of rain. We need that. In fact, I strongly encourage you to check out your garden hose, connect it to the faucet, and water something…anything, it probably needs it.

It’s hard to believe it has been two years since the flood. I know there are many who are still dealing with the effects of that historic event. I know we were greatly affected by the creek flooding. Most had to deal with the river event. Even if you only had to deal with the two days of deluge, it certainly leaves an indelible impression. So maybe a bit of dry conditions isn’t so bad, after all? Something to ponder while you’re watering…

With hope for more seasonable temperatures, there can be no doubt: it’s time to get your annuals and warm season vegetables in the ground. The cool spell of the last two weeks prior put many in a ‘holding pattern’ for planting. Along with the tremendous numbers of pansies and violas still flowering all over town (including my house), the current weather gives us a great reminder of what will soon be the norm; May is now here and June will be here before you know it. Better get ‘em planted .
