The Soup I Sent Marge
On the family side: We did manage to see a firework show for the 4th. Although quite a few shows were postponed or canceled because it has been so dry here. We added a new town to our list of firework shows we have seen. We went to Whitewater this year. It was a pretty decent show and they had a carnival and parade also. We skipped that because of the heat index of 100+...instead we sat in air conditioning and ate Chinese food.
On the home front: My garden is losing it's battle against the rabbits and chipmunks. The tomatoes, peppers and onions are doing well. All my other plants zucchini, beans, melons, lettuce..all of them are little nubs just barely alive. We have tried everything from flashy noisy things to blood meal, fencing and even an owl shaped cut out. Maybe some wolf urine or something along those lines.
Hope you all had a great 4th!!
