What a difference a week makes! We went from nice summer weather to extreme hot weather, and it is going to hang around a while. I guess we haven’t hit 100 degrees since August 2019 according to Tulsa weather guys, but that may change this week. So it’s time to grab...

I hope everyone is enjoying the awesome summer weather! After several days of rain we are in for plenty of sunshine, and so far we have avoided unbearable heat…knock on wood. So I was able to go out to the gardens at The Artichoke last Monday, and I was pleasantly...

Hey Grand Lakers! I hope you guys are enjoying this fabulous weather! High 80’s to low 90’s for another week, we got a little rain in between and lots of sunshine. Now this is how summer needs to be…all the time! Unfortunately, I have not been able to get out there...

Well, so far we are having a pretty good summer. Maybe a little too much rain at times, but that has kept us from miserably hot temperatures. This week is perfect with high 80’s during the day and 70’s at night. I would take this pattern for the rest of the summer!...

Well Mother Nature sure turned things around this last week with another cool down and plenty of rain. The lawn was just about brown and now it is green again. And we haven’t had to drag out the hose in a week! Wish it could be this way all summer! I‘m finally getting...

What a refreshing cool front we had Monday, and with it some needed rain. I love it because I am not ready for 97 degree temps yet, and Jim is real happy since he has had to water every day. So there are some summer chores to do… The Crepe Myrtles took a beating...

Well there’s nothing like going from a cool spring to immediate hot summer weather. It would have been nice to have a few weeks of 80’s before we hit 90’s and high humidity causing heat indexes in the 100’s, but I guess it is appropriate that the Summer Solstice is...

It’s beginning to look a lot like SUMMER! And it’s about time, right? We are in for some 80’s and 90’s so the tomatoes, peppers, squashes, cucumbers, okra, etc should be happy plants. I don’t know if the basil I have is going to make it or not, but a little sunshine...

Well we survived the first holiday weekend of the season. The restaurant was very busy all week and in spite of a cool cloudy Saturday, we had a good amount of traffic at The Saturday Morning Market. Someone said we have not hit 90 degrees yet this year, which I guess...

I can’t believe it is Memorial Day weekend! I guess that means summer is here, “weather” we like it or not. Tee hee… And that also means there is a lot to do in the gardens. With all the rain, the plants are flourishing, but the weeds are too. There are so many weeds...
