I’m really rejoicing tonight.  My hero husband has successfully killed all the cicada killers, except one… and he knows his time is limited!

And… I saw a bumble bee on the zinnias.

After a horrendous week of battling these creatures that made it impossible to step inside the garden, we can take a big sigh of relief and get busy repairing the damage they have done.

I finally was brave enough to harvest some cucumbers and cut some basil…


The little squash plants are looking good. The pumpkin leaves look fabulous, but I’m not seeing any fruit. I pulled out the remaining very sad and wilted tomato plants. Peppers are still doing well. As soon as the temperature gets below 100, I’ll plant the lettuce, spinach, and kale. I hope that is soon. : )
