Dog Days.

it's hot, it's humid, it's the height of summer in houston. even the dogs don't want to be outside.

to make matters worse, i seem to have become a mosquito magnet. once upon a time, mosquitoes ignored me, preferring to munch on the people around me. apparently i've become sweeter in my middle age. or something like that.

hurricane claudette was kind to us. we got a bit of rain on tuesday and a few more showers wednesday (rain in july is almost always a good thing). a couple of my bell and banana pepper plants were slightly beaten down, but they'll recover. the serrano peppers and the tomatoes were completely unaffected and continue to grow pretty much like weeds. at least they're producing lots of edibles.
