Currently my struggle is to change the url of my blog. This has been something I have wanted to do since I noticed what comes up when a search is entered for "seed and weed". In all of my naivety, I did not even consider what those words would conjure up in a search engine. Yikes! Not the image that I want to portray at all! Now to figure out how to change the url and continue to keep my followers. Anyone with suggestions?
In the meantime, I am in the process of thinking of a new name for my blog...
I am looking forward to sharing many of the other "pieces of my quilt" with all of you!

Per the local weatherman, yesterday marked the fourth day of 100+ degree heat in our area. The last time that occurred was in 1988. I remember that year well as the year that the corn was literally brown between the heat and lack of rain. Many fields in our area are now irrigated as we sit on top of a large underground aquifer.
Today's forecasted high? A cool 89 degrees...

The heat wave we have been experiencing is supposed to break tomorrow. Now to break the drought...
Tomatoes. These had been damaged by our previous hail storm but so far so good.
Section of Roma tomatoes. The blue tarp is in place to heat the soil underneath and kill the grass that keeps trying to grow there. The goal is to add more raised beds in that area.
