Why do I love this weather? It's hot, it makes my t-shirt stick to my back and the mosquitoes. Oh my God the mosquitoes. They don't usually like me, but I figure this year there must be so many of them that they take whoever they can find.
But it also makes my garden grow like mad. With the rain we've had and then the sun we've had, things are getting rather jungle like in the south 40.
|Me and the insanely huge honeysuckle.|
Turns out that there are two different gourd genuses (genii?) one of which has yellow flowers and the other has white. The ones with yellow flowers are all related to squash and melons which also have yellow flowers. I have somehow managed to grow all of one genus last year and all of the other this year. What a coincidence!
