|From Russia with love... yep... this plant comes from Crimea, an island peninsula in the Black Sea|

There is a possibility of rain this week and the plants could use some good ol' fashion sky water. I often wonder why rain water seems to have a much more positive effect on plants than well water. I might save that question for another post. Below is a pic of the tiniest green pepper I've ever seen, as well as the progress of a watermelon vine. Both peppers and melons have really made positive advances this past week. Good job team.
|Dear Sky, please bring rain for the melons and the peppers. Thanks.|
For those that remember Scout the Mockingbird he's doing fine and has a doppleganger that's been hanging around as well. But, the newest member of the family is a Black Ratsnake that measures somewhere in the 6-7 foot range. Yeah... it's that big. Saturday marked the 3rd time he's been spotted in the yard, so I figure he's here to stay. I noticed him coming down out of a tree while I was mowing, and by noticed I mean screamed while atop a riding mower towards his direction like a frightened child when he caught my eye. I've decided to name him Lucious and I hope to get a picture of him soon, but not too soon.
So in honor of Lucious enjoy a song by Black Prairie.
