We have had so much rain that I can not keep up with the growing grass and garden weeds. We have been enjoying zucchini, cucumbers and tomatoes. Dustin dug his first tub of potatoes and got 4 1/2 pounds from that tub. We will be having hand-cut fries in the air fryer tonight with some of them. He only grows red potatoes because they are his favorite. He has several more tubs of potatoes to dig when they are ready.

I was in Belfast recently, and about 90% of the people I saw were wearing masks. I do not leave home without my mask.  It is a simple thing to do.

Jonathan Swift is quoted as saying, “How is it possible to expect that mankind will take advice, when they will not so much as take warning?”

Have a great week and keep on mowing, cutting flowers from your garden and eating all those fresh veggies.
