A twenty-one mile bike ride, followed by more than three hours of gardening equals one exhausted chica. But it's a good kind of exhaustion. It's 75F here, with no humidity to speak of (rare for an Ohio summer) which makes it perfect gardening weather.
I did a ton of weeding, planted some tiny flower seedlings, cleaned my gardening cabinet in the garage and--most importantly--took time to read and lounge on the deck.
The vegetable garden is exploding. There are tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, jalapenos, habaneros, and ghost chili peppers. The Boy is the one with a penchant for blazing hot peppers. -
