Sorry about your swing and hope you are not too banged up.

Let's don't even start about mowers.  We have "his and hers" riding mowers.   The transmission went out of one in the fall, a blade spindle went out of the other last week.  Hubby hates robbing parts off one to keep the other running, but he changed out decks this time because he needed to mow.  Think snakes!

Parts have been ordered and we'll see if we get the other mower running this season or not.

I'm Mary, Mary quite contraire lately .. the weather has been more like Autumn and is forecast to remain that way for the rest of the week- Without warmth, stuff just doesn't want to grow .. -- the mower quit, the swing broke when I was sitting in it .. before I knew it I was laying on my back looking up at the sky .. like an astronaut-ess .. meh ...pitybanner.jpg

Sorry to hear all this ^^^^. :( But glad you weren't hurt.  :)

My summer squash have really started to bloom as have my cantaloupe.  I had a not so friendly visit in the garden one night and about half of my watermelon plants disappeared...nipped off at the ground.  I'm pretty sure it is a ground squirrel.  They are cute little buggers to watch skurry around, but the chicken wire can't keep them out of the garden.

Hahaha .. I just said it was hot and dry .. Its raining ..  Sorry about the watermelon- Due to it having been hot and dry the ants were foraging and carrying off seeds big time so will be lucky if they left any behind, they're efficient .. chipmunks are back at again as usual .. My cosmos for whatever reason grew to 6 inches and quit, the blooms are teenie and irregular .. always something!

I use a systemic fertilizer for my flowers that a big name company puts out for roses especially.  It contains a insecticide that takes care of the bugs.

I'm my way out to the garden to seet my snap traps to try to catch that pesky rodent now.

peppers are lagging behind, what I thought was gourd or pumpkin wound up being zucchini -- volunteers from last year .. the tomato, thus far, look better than ever!
