While our yellow, pink roses, peonies and other flowers were blooming this week, we were feeling a June 2007 freeze during mid-week -- after the Wednesday Winds blew in gustily at 60 to 70 mph here in the southwest valley of Colorado. Happy Birthday to our youngest son, Robert L. Wagner!
It cooled down considerably in the valley and left a "little" snow in the mountains. AND... another freeze followed Thursday evening, but I got the garden covered with a plastic covering Thursday night -- Not on Wednesday, though!
After that first freeze Wednesday evening, we found ourselves having to snip the tops of our tomato plants. We expect that will set back our tomatoes. AND... we had some green tomatoes along with lots of blooms. Oh, well! Que Sera Sera!
The zucchini and cucumbers did not fair to well, though. They were welted beyond any help! On the good side... NW Okie's herb garden looks pretty good, though, with the two kinds of basil, parsley, cilantro, orange mint, peppermint, thyme and rosemary.
As to our SW Colorado Gas Prices... I checked this morning in Bayfield, Colorado and regular was $3.459, down 8-cents from a couple days ago, with 10-cents difference between premium to premium plus. Diesel is still lowest at the pumps coming in at $3.039. Those 25-cent gas prices we baby-boomers experienced long gone in the mid-1960s are gone forever. Remember when we cruised the streets with friends and our quarters we saved for the gallons of gas we used? NOW... this NW Okie has lots of quarters, but a quarter won't buy a gallon of gas anymore, will it?! ... LOL
Happy Birthday to John Edwards of North Carolina!
