It's been another day over 80˚; A record number since April first, 13 so far, another forecasted for tomorrow, then more average temps. It was a good day to plant more garden, no meetings or other events. So the beans were planted as were some spinach plants, some broccoli seeds and some onion starts. It was a great motivation to mow and weed wack around the raised beds. Looks good.
It's a time to mow some of the rest of the yard also, mostly the lower part under the oak tree and around the barn. The blue barrel that I set up two days ago seems to be working or at least the chickens have water every time I check them.
A couple California poppies blossomed a couple days ago. The hedge with its clusters of tiny white flowers have lost their blossoms. So I trimmed that section this evening. Then I mowed until it was to hard to see, about 8:30. That's the beauty of summer in Oregon, or Alaska, the days are long and darkness come later and later. That was one of the things that I found unpleasant in Tanzania which is near the equator, darkness almost comes about 6:00pm throughout the entire year. No real seasons as I have known them.
