Well we're right in the middle of the "Dog Days of Summer". Even our little schnauzer, Chester, doesn't appreciate this heat. I don't mind hot...I just don't like the humidity. I don't know about where you're at, but we could use a good inch or two of rain and soon.

I was in Albion on the 8th to judge open class flowers and things really looked good out there. I talked with Ann Jarecki of Jarecki Greenhouse and she said west of Albion at Spalding was drying up already. My feeling is the sandhills should be left to pasture...corn and beans will just struggle in the heat. Our rains lately have been really spotty around here, but Omaha and Lincoln get some decent showers.

We do have some things on sale right now......$20 will get you a whole box, any size of annuals and veggies(what's left) to fill those bare spots in your flower beds and garden. Our  geraniums in 4.5 or 5" pots are now $4.00 each, temperennials are 2 for 1, daylilies are buy one get the second one half price and miniature roses are $5.25 each, regular price was $7.25. All our hardy Hydrangeas are $5 off a pot. Our sale goes through Saturday, July 15th.

It is inventory time so I will be going back to that. Hope you had a great 4th of July and if you get the chance get out and enjoy some of the local county fairs going on now. Great entertainment, wonderful 4-H projects to see, outstanding livestock exhibits and fun fair food....what more could you ask for? Enjoy your summer.

Stay cool or enjoy a pool!
