Well, I am enjoying my time off. Despite the rain, which started Sunday evening and has showered off and on since. Today we went for a family day hike around Tiger Mountain in east King County. It was too ambitious to try the 5-mile round-trip summit hike with a 2 and 4 year old on tiny legs, so we went the 2+ mile flatter Tradition Lake hike. That was enough for a first attempt. We all had fun and the weather co-operated so I'm happy.
I saw a bunch of blackberries ready for harvest, but since they were on Puget Power land, I couldn't be certain they weren't sprayed. Funny but you saw what my blackberries looked like. Not sure if it's the slightly less sun mine get than the ones in an open field, but I was jealous. hehe
While I was on the hike I got mad though. It seems someone stole my blog address, probably from Freedomgardens.org, and has passed it around to all their spammer friends. In the last week I've averaged a dozen random comments a day, each with random words and gibberish in the body, with sites I've never heard of looking for some free advertizing. I'd email the senders but they're randomly generated on hosts I've never heard of. If I didn't enjoy the spontaneous comments from lurkers so much, I'd stop allowing non-registered folks to comment. It may come to that if I go a week or two without a single valid un-registered comment. How annoying. I can't even block the posters because they'll just come at me from a different place. I don't blame Freedomgardens.org, just some unethical person on the site. /grrrr
Sometime this week I've got a ton of gardening to do. But for now I'm just letting my garden get the much needed rain it deserves.
I'll end on a bright note. Some more tomatoes are ready for harvest, as well as some cukes. I'm going to eat them, I swear. And report back.
Enjoy your garden!
