    I have a bowl of fresh Panama Passionfruits sitting on the kitchen countertop. Each time I go outside to hang out laundry, or bring it back in, I find new passionfruit have fallen from the sky. The passionfruit vines (there’s more than one) volunteered along the back fence in the utilities...

    it's wet

    but how wet? I don’t think it rained enough to really keep things going if it gets hot again this weekend. The phlox was drooping yesterday, which generally means everything is either thirsty or half dead. We had thunder earlier and a few rumbles are out there still. There goes a long on...
