Enough about the weather

Enough about the weather

OK. It’s hot. It’s raining. It’s humid. It’s too windy or it’s too dry for your tomato plants. No wait… soon it will be too cold, too snowy or to “waethery!” I’ve heard just about all the whining I want to hear about whatever it is doing outside. It’s called weather and it happens. Get […]
