Stick a fork in me I'm done ....

Here it is mid July, temps hanging out in the 100 - 105+ range, day or two have slipped to 98/99 but still feels like 100 ....... last two days have been humid from the clouds coming north from Arizona, no rain left to share with California.  My two zucchini plants had a few blossoms ..... no zucchini, yellow squash has some new growth but no squash right now, tomatoes are disappointing, not producing enough to make the time or the water worth the effort.  I should just go to local farmer's stands would probably be cheaper in the long run.

Still haven't figured out how to download pictures from my tablet, lambs are getting big.  I banded all but one of the ram lambs, he was too small when I did the others, need to get him done before it is too late.  On the downside of making them all wethers looks like I have one that is not going to have horns, oh well.

Finally made doctor appointment, had to go for referral since it has been 5 years since my last appointment with the urologist, then go through xrays, CT scan, yada, yada, yada, yes I have another kidney stone, parked in my left kidney so have to go for another treatment to blast it out one of these days.

I'm ready for winter but I know the rest of you are enjoying the idea of a long hot summer.

  2. No enjoyment of summer heat here! We're very close to you in temps right now, although we did get a LITTLE moisture on Sunday. Not enough to stop the constant watering of the garden, though. I hear kidney stones are NO FUN; hope you get it resolved/dissolved soon!

  4. We are in the 96-98 range and humid as all get out. The garden is fizzling out as well. I think people not in these hot areas like us don't understand how overwhelming it can be, ha.

  7. Yikes! What a mess, Audrey - hope the stone is shattered (safely) into a billion pain-free pieces. Maybe you should start thinking about packing up the herd and heading East....?

  8. Ugh, so sorry to hear about the kidney stone. Sounds like this is something you've had experience with before? No fun.

    I know that just because you have plenty of heat, it doesn't mean you can garden easily. Your situation is just as frustrating as ours with not enough warmth this year. And you'd love some of our rain, I know. The farmers in the mid and southern part of MN are having a really hard time of it because they still can't get into their fields to plant nor can they get into the hay fields to cut hay let alone get it dried and baled.

    Take care of yourself and keep us updated on the kidney stone issue.
