Okay. I admit it. I am an obsessive list maker. Nothing thrills me more than accomplishing a task ( other than getting to cross it off of the list, of course).
And with this gardening thing....it just goes on and on....
So, its a bad sign when I start loosing steam about Mid-July.
Its hot out, I'm sweating , the bugs are buzzing around my head and the plants do not have the same provocative attraction they held back in May.
My early spring exuberant attitude of wanting to garden in my p.js and sleep in the potting shed, so "I don't miss a thing", has waned ever so slightly to a " Lets get this task done before I fall down from heat exhaustion."
So, what do I feel like doing?
Baking and cooking in the air conditioned house.
Caramel Apple Pecan cheese cake
I baked this for the gym staff where I work out.
Next time I'll cut into it so you can see how lovely the caramel drips down the slice of cake.
Some chopped toasted hazelnuts would have been nice.
So to all of our garden blogger friends in the west, experiencing an extended heat wave, feel free to blog
about anything else. No worries,we won't hold it against you.
Who am I kidding? I will be back to loving gardening tomorrow!
