December! What????? And the weather is feeling like it. Mother Nature handed out a pretty rough freeze in our area this week. Yep, the green healthy foliage on my potatoes is done. But the potatoes are nice and safe under the soil line. So what is the difference...

Well, another month is slipping by us and before you know it, Christmas will be here!! It looks like we are going to have a little cooler weather this week, maybe no more 70’s for the rest of the year. But not too cold yet. So with the nicer weather last week, I...

Holy cow, I can’t believe Thanksgiving is next week! We are back to warming temperatures again this week, so it is hard to feel like it is November in the first place. I’m not complaining…we’ve had our cold days, but then it gets warm again, crazy! So I guess if you...

Well, the last two weeks were full of autumn colors and now the leaves are falling like crazy. Our lawn guy came and mowed the leaves with his mulching blade on Friday and by Sunday there were as many or more leaves on the ground! But it is that time of year and you...

Well we made it through the first cold snap of the fall. I can’t believe Oklahoma City got so much ice damage last week and we just got a lot of rain and barely got a frost up here. I covered my boat garden with tablecloths for several days and it did fine through the...

According to the weather guys, it looks like we are going to push 90 degrees sometime this week. That is crazy! How can we go from nice fall weather to a high of 90 in a matter of a few days? That’s Oklahoma weather for you! Speaking of weather, I saw in the paper...

Well, fall is here and the weather is right on track. There have been summers where it was hot all through September, but we have had darn near perfect fall weather this year. So if your warm-weather crops are looking like they are done for the season, now is a good...

Well, the weather was absolutely gorgeous again this weekend. It couldn’t have been more appropriate than Sunday and Monday were perfect because the Autumn equinox was Tuesday which is the official first day of fall. The Equinox occurs twice a year when the sun is...

You could not ask for better weather for being outside these last few days. I spent Monday doing the continuing cleanup chore of dead stuff on neglected summer plants. In the spring I planted Zinnia seeds along with Sunflower seeds at one end of my vegetable garden...

Well, it’s Labor Day Weekend, usually indicating the end of summer. But that doesn’t mean summer is over! If the weather holds out, we can enjoy a lot more days on the lake. Likewise with the vegetable garden. Usually by the end of August the vegetable gardens are...
