Check the carpets ever so often. If the tanks sweat and the rugs get wet - you are going to have wet, smelly carpet pieces in your basement.

I started zinnias and cosmos late, too. I have buds starting on the zinnias, but the cosmos haven't even germinated. I'm hoping for a LONG, WARM Fall season to at least see these flowers bloom.

Been feeling under the weather for the last 2 weeks. Had a bad Diverticulitis attack on 7/15. Saw my gastro doc, got meds (Flagyl & Cipro- horrible stuff) and just basically became a "house" potato while recuperating. Went from a liquid diet to a very low fiber diet, and now SLOWLY adding back more fiber foods. I'm feeling better now, and have felt well enough to do a bit of putzing outside. I just don't stay at it too long. I still tire easily. I've lost about 8 pounds, but what a heck of way to lose it! I go back to the doctor August 5th. Sometimes I feel like I'm falling apart. So much for the "Golden Years".

Hi Jane, I'm so sorry to hear you're not feelign well. That sucks. And yes, what a heck of a way to lose weight.... I hope you're soon doing much better.

RE: Wet carpets. Yup. You're right. I checked today and the one around the pressure tank slid right off into a wet mess on the floor. So that's out for now. I think it might be that I did not get it wrapped securely. Will have to do a little research on this...

We've had a good growing season down here for most things, but all the rain did not do my veg a lot of good. I have huge tomato plants but almost nothing in the way of blossoms/fruit. Just all green growth. Our neighbors usually grow the best cantaloupe (they set up a table and sell them for $2), this summer they are big and juicy but tasteless. I'm wondering if my onions will cure properly too...I have them in the shed drying but they got so much rain that they are huge. My garlic all but rotted away.

The end is nothing, the journey is all.
