Better build me an ark!

I don’t know what it is about nighttime storms. I cannot sleep when it is windy and last night was horrible. Add in the heavy rains and hail hitting the side of the house and bathroom skylight… let’s just say I will be looking forward to taking a nap this afternoon. At the back of my backyard is an old fence row and it pretty much looks like a vernal pool right now. ANYTHING I do outside today will require my fancy-smancy garden boots. Or my hip-waders. Or a canoe.

  1. Great posts. I’ve been passing them along to garden club members and fellow Master Gardeners. The continuing education opportunities and events are especially interesting since there’s so much more going on in our area than we generally find in the newspaper. Thanks, Vicki!

    • Thanks, Ann. Keep perusing the Events Calendar. I update it all the time. Just found the brochure for the Licking County Master Gardener conference today. I’m doing one of their programs but hadn’t seen the schedule yet.
