A Friday Ray of Sunshine

On this overcast Friday, as we slowly eek our way into August, today’s post reminds us to check any last minute items in the garden before the potential storms move in later today. When bad weather was looming last August, this was the advice I gave my readers. “Check all plants that are susceptible to wind damage, especially your tomatoes. Any newly planted trees should be properly supported with guying systems. If a guying system is installed, check its tension – not too tight, not too loose.” It doesn’t hurt to do a garden walkabout before the weather hits. Don’t want any lost tomatoes or trees!

Final advice - have a great Friday and remember to send out your ray of sunshine. 

Today’s quote is an excerpt from Jason Mraz’s song lyrics, ‘Sunshine.’  

“Well sometimes the sun shines
On other peoples houses and not mine
Some days the clouds paint the sky all gray
And it takes away my summertime
Somehow the sun keeps shining upon you
While I struggle to get mine
If there’s a light in everybody
Send out your ray of sunshine.”
