Good morning, everyone. I am finally feeling somewhat human. Mom and I have spent the last several days fighting very nasty colds. We still aren't fully recovered but at least we aren't totally wiped out. This weather hasn't helped either. Cold and wet. Nothing done in the gardens. I have to get busy and maybe this week I will be able to do so. It looks like someone flipped a switch. We couldn't get out of the 60s last week and will be in the 80s and 90s this week. Thankfully the heavy rains did not damage any of the plants. I kept the milk carton cloches on the ground cherries and the shades I had put up protected the rest from the rain. Has some wind but it didn't damage anything around here. Parts of Michigan and Chicago weren't so lucky.
