01 Oct An Arizona Garden Update
My mom wanted to tell you all about her garden in Arizona so she did so, and made me jealous. Ha. Enjoy!
Dear Daughter Flora:
Greetings from the valley of the sun.
Things are so opposite here from there. For example, I saw two cars trying to get into the only shady spot to park at the local supermarket. Here, they use umbrellas for shade, not rain protection. Not complaining…having a lovely time playing in my tiny backyard container garden. Sending some pictures too.
If it looks like it’s in a tent, it is (sun protection, 102 yesterday). But cukes and tomatoes germinated and sprouted in 3 days. Amazing! The golden hubbard squash are up and running, the tomatoes grew 6 inches in one day.
Now all I have to do is to attract the bees, carefully however, the Africanized Killer Bees live here, too. So the landlord told us to assume all bees are those bees.
Got to go, the pool awaits 🙂
Love, Your Mother
