Here's why the two trees had to go.
The earliest of my blueberry varieties are ripening finally after teasing me with green for weeks. They are delicious as the cardinals and squirrels can attest. I have rehung the big rubber snakes among the branches to deter the blueberry thieves.
Doesn't seem to deter Emma, but I would share them with her anyway. Yesterday, she told me she picked some blueberries, but they "didn't make it back to the house."
I understand that completely, I can't count the number of rain-washed blueberries I've eaten while picking.
Speaking of rain, this low pressure system has dropped copious amounts of the wonderful stuff over north Florida this week and we sure appreciate it. Mom and Dad have already measured over 7 inches and that was yesterday's news.
Hurricane season begins in about 10 days! Yes!
Fill my pond, storms, fill my pond.
Time to redo the emergency food box. I recently cleaned it out by giving last year's supplies to my baby Katie who is working, colleging, and supporting herself ... mostly.
So, now I need to sit down, think about what we need, and hit the store.... And last year's plastic barrel of potable water needs emptying and refilling with fresh water and just a few drops of bleach.
School is winding down.
Summer is winding up.
