Yesterday was chore day. We had a pile of trash that needed to go to the dump so off we went. We haven't been there since lockdown since we have trash pickup but this time of year it's better to get rid of the trash asap before vermin and critters make a mess of it. On the way home we stopped at the koi park. The waterlilies are all in bloom and they were lovely. We didn't stay long because the little park was full of maskless folks. We added 12 cases in our little area this week. That's not good.
The next chore was the grass. I man the riding mower while The Mister pushes the little mower around the trees. I had to cover up from head to toe in bug gear and I almost gave myself a heat stroke. I felt terrible for the rest of the day.
The weather has been so terrible that I haven't really been outside much at all so I was shocked at the mess. Everything is overgrown. There were also more trees down from Isaias that we thought. The path is blocked in both directions.
My poor container garden is a disaster.
We've got a couple of little tomatoes but that's about it. It wasn't exactly a success but then again who knew we would be having record breaking heat and humidity all summer long. It's been awful. I don't ever remember such a terrible summer.
There is one thing that is having a good year. This stuff. I have no idea what it is. It just popped up out of nowhere and now we have a big patch of it in the side yard. Anyone have any idea what it is?
