  1. I thought ticks were noticeably worse this years as well. My wife was just (30 days ago) diagnosed with Lyme disease. Fortunately, it was caught in the first 30 days or so as she had classic symptoms of early lyme. Symptoms were so close to COVID we really thought she had contracted the virus somehow but the test came back neg as symptoms worsened. Once the rash started we knew we were dealing something else. Hope your boy is on the mend here soon.
  2. Was in the garden yesterday evening preparing to water things and just happened to notice the rain gauge. Completely oblivious that we received .54" Tuesday night. Had to go inside and look up the radar loop to convince myself that my kids weren't messing with me! No need to water.....it actually happened. lol
  3. It really seems to be random sometimes. We have 4 nice, lush basil plants that added to a great caprese salad Saturday... Today 2 of the 4 have been ravaged by June bugs. All of the plants are within 2 feet of each other. The other two are untouched. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  4. Already 86 here...classic summer day on tap. Already sweating just walking around the yard with my coffee. Garden is loving the weather here recently....plenty of moisture, warm humid days and lots of sun.
  5. No sprinklers here for a while... .48" yesterday. Roughly 2.25" the past 3 days.
  6. I might just bullseye this storm. Getting dark with thunder in the distance. Just svr warned. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  7. 1.83" is the final from yesterday...Creek was raging pretty good last night but stayed within its banks. Feels like a smallmouth morning...unfortunately its hard to wet a line from my desk.
  8. Great storm. Not much wind but a ton of T&L...torrential rain and pretty long duration too. 1.27" from that one. 1.65" for the day so far.
  9. Any chance of rotation with these storms today? I'll defer to those more knowledgeable... Looks like a little rotation passing through Inwood right now...
  10. 0.0 for the past 4 days.....parched. What a string of bad luck....
  11. .38" Which doubles my monthly total...roughly. Vis sat this morning looked like wild fires with smoke plumes coming off of skyline drive...upslope was cranking.
  12. BUSTED! A week from now these would have hatched and proceeded to destroy a vibrant zucchini plant....
  13. .31" for the month of June so far. The yard is parched.....Hopefully a nice soaking tonight. I was pruning some excess leaves out of our squash a zucchini plants yesterday to encourage some better airflow and found squash bugs. I have been trying to figure out what the heck has been munching on the leaves. First time I have seen them in our gardens...
  14. Reminds me of the ull situation a few weeks ago. Cutters during winter and suppression during the summer? Only in the MA. Sent from my SM-G973U using Tapatalk
  15. Pretty much everything except root veggies and greens. Ive used it mostly for tomatoes and vine veggies. It's easy to train the vines over or around the mound. On a side note...I pulled the wood chips off the top of the bed this late winter and added about 3" of our compost to the top and placed the wood chips back. The only thing I have actually planted this spring is the row of tomatoes you see across the top. Everything else is volunteer. 2 zucchini, 1 yellow squash, 2 cucumbers and 3 of something that I am not quite sure yet what they are. They look like cantaloupe.
