It's only the third day, and I got out of bed wondering what on earth I'm doing chronicling my lettuce patch.
Last night was so hot we didn't have the usual (9PM-ish) evening breeze until 11PM or so, and we couldn't get to sleep until 2 in the morning. I went to sleep thinking how hot my little lettuces and pot plants must be.
I woke up at 7.30 and thought to water them before I forget. Afterwards, I toyed with the idea of weeding, but a) it's going to be another hot day, even though the patch doesn't get the sun for a few more hours; b) the bugs are already out; the annoying tiny white jumping bugs make me sneeze and itch; plus b) the Sketchbook is taking oh, so much longer than I had expected. I'm enjoying some of it still, but my interest is waning; I'd really rather be weaving.
