Hot Hump Day

It was warmer still on Wednesday. If it stayed the same temp as it was when I walked outside at 10:00 a.m. I would have loved it. But, it didn't.

I went to Newburgh Grill for lunch. I got a grilled ham and cheese sandwich and a side salad (it was too hot for soup). Then I went to Randazzo's. I wanted another yellow rose, more sweet alysium and a Roma tomato plant. The only thing I left with was the tomato plant. They were already sold out of the rest. :(

It was 82 and uncomfortable when I walked outside at 3:00 p.m.

When I got home after work, I treated the cat and changed clothes. Then I went out back to plant the tomato.

Naturally, my neighbor came to the fence to offer me his leftover plants. No hot peppers this time, but more tomatoes and cukes. I planted the cucumbers (mine already looked bad) and two more tomato plants. I'll take the three tomato plants left into work.

I ate some Puerto Rican chicken with rice and beans for dinner that Vicky gave me. Delicious!

I fell asleep watching an old movie on TCM. When I woke up for a bathroom break, I turned everything off and went to bed.


  1. Home Depot had a lot of yellow roses.

  2. How late can you plant?

  3. @ Jake: In Michigan, folk lore has it either after Mother's Day or Memorial Day (depending on which old folk you ask).
