A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

RAIN, RAIN GO AWAY


Enough with the rain already!

My hope of growing vegetables is sinking in the mud that they're trying to grow in.

The tomatoes have black spots, the peppers are shriveling, and the squash looks like it's rotting from the inside out.

On top of that, 2-year-old granddaughter Chloe has been sneaking around and pulling off the green tomatoes that are trying to ripen in the deluge of rainstorms.

At least the blooms that appeared on the plants before the vegetables started to pop out were pretty.

And if it were hot and dry, I'd probably be complaining about all the watering I'd have to do.

It seems some of us are never satisfied.

I agree-now you don't need a hose-by the way the electric storm rearranged our timer on the spinkler system and the water comes on like a show four times a day plus the evening lights go on at noon-thanks alot for praying not to hose!!!

This year has been an abomination!
I have aborted any attempts at growing anything remotely resembling a vegetable.
What the rain didn't drown,the damn groundhogs,rabbits and deer helped themselves to.
I'll leave the growing of produce to Pathmark and "Produce Pete".
Anyone up for a mushroom from my lawn? LOL
