  • Notes from Groundhog Hill: Summer of Adversity

     Despite the extreme heat of the last few weeks, the garden at Groundhog Hill survives thanks to the two-to-three isolated thunderstorms Mother Nature has delivered.

    Zinnias and marigolds are blooming, but the sunflowers and giant marigolds are taking their own sweet time and have yet to open, as if to say, "Um. Dude, we're not sure we're up for these conditions."

    If you hear a distant floral popping sound in the next few days, though, don't fear as it's just the explosion of color at Groundhog Hill.
