It is so hot this summer. The only water the lawn gets is if we are running through the sprinkler. It's just not worth the battle. We water the flower beds and garden and that's about it.
The garden is doing quite well. We have a different breed of cucumbers and we are actually getting some that aren't bitter. Our tomatoes are out of control, as usual. Yes, those are the tomato plants standing just as tall as the corn stalks. We have 6 tomato plants. Cantaloupe is looking good as well. We are going to have 20 or so ready within 2 weeks. The green beans have been just as good as past years, too. Oh how we love fresh green beans! We have at least a dozen bags of frozen green beans already blanched and ready for winter eating.
No watermelon in the garden this year so we just buy some when we want it. The kids love it and so do we. It's extra fun when you can eat it wherever you want outside.
We also had a new service move into our hallway.
Chloe's Hair Shop
Boys and Girls Allowed
I paid $0.65 to get my hair combed out after my shower.
Royce's combing was free. Hmmm.
Chloe had toys and games just like Gram's hair shop. She also set up the portable DVD player so she could watch Flicka while she waited on customers.
Chloe loves setting up little stores and I love her patience while she waits for customers.
