A journal documenting the trials and tribulations of gardening on the rocky coast of Downeast Maine. My attempt at keeping in touch with my many friends and loved ones who live all across the nation.

Yesterday was the most miserable day I have experienced since leaving Kentucky almost four years ago. It was hot, sticky and just plain nasty weather with temps up in the 90's. What little sea breeze we could feel was warmed by the westerly winds and relief was only to be had by sitting downstairs in the family room with a fan and something cool to drink. It was so hot that I didn't even venture out into the garden! Now *that's* hot!!! However, the elephant ears on the deck just loved it!
Gardening and knitting fanatic! I love digging in the dirt (what little I have of it!) My zone 5 garden is located on 2 1/2 heavily wooded, rocky acres on the coast of Downeast Maine and is shared by Hubby and our two cats, Spike and Sluggo. When unable to garden, I love to knit, cook, pursue my photograpy, bake and read numerous other blogs.
