I Love hot and humid as it has been this year I am really enjoying it. The garden is literally out of control. You can barley see the Mundo locked up to the hitching post behind the cucumber, broccoli, green beans, and corn. Whenever I start to get down about how hot it has been this year (especially in the kitchen...where I spend my days and some nights) I try to remember the frigid days of say...mid-January, when it gets dark by 4:30pm (16:30). Click here to see the same hitching post with one of my bikes (the mule) locked to it in the winter (and also a photo of the post nearly buried in snow)...I love the winter, but the older I get the shorter I wish summer was...right now, I'm loving the summer.
