Good Morning My Dear Ones,
Wow, where has the time gone? It is nearly the end of July already.
Great news from our garden space, the watermelon plants [there are 2] have started to vine and they have some blooms on them...so thrilling to wait in anticipation for fresh watermelon from the garden. I have tried to grow watermelons in the garden for several years with no victory. This year we put up a fence to keep out any visitors [the cats ate the watermelon plants last year; they left all the other plants alone, just ate the watermelon plants, go figure!] and by the blessing of God we now have some lovely promising plants. In addition to the thriving watermelon, there are some pepper plants, tomato, lemongrass, cucumber, okra[not doing so well, but hanging in there!] and some flowers. The weather has been favorable to gardening...last year there was no rain and very hot and humid...the garden was not able to produce much. This year we have received so far, some nice cucumbers with m ore appearing each day...soon the tomato plants will provide for us...there are blooms now...no tomatoes...YET...soon.
I have stumble [no not literally...or perhaps maybe literally since the clover is out in my field] upon a delightful homemade tea made from red clovers. There are many benefits to the clover tea and it is right outside in my yard...hard to resist a natural wonder [I add a little dried mint to mine]. It is good for detoxing the blood and the liver...those who take blood thinners, beware...I offer a couple links to read more:
