Fact: Plants do respond to sound. Talking to plants to help them grow is a well-known old wives’ tale, but studies have shown vibration (like music, or perhaps even the sweet sound of your voice) can affect plant growth. Plus, the Myth Busters (in an admittedly not-so-scientific study) compared a silent greenhouse to one where they piped in a voice soundtrack and found that plants in the latter grew more.
Mary hit the kitchen first so we could be ready for visitors this afternoon. Zucchini bread is our favorite.
Scout bought me a new T-Shirt, with a bit of help from his mommy.
I watered the south forty all day, getting it ready to be dug up; the garden contractor is coming at 7:00 AM tomorrow. The ground was hard, so the water should make the job a little easier.
Meanwhile, the little loaves of bread are getting toasty in the kitchen. Mary likes her new silicone pans.
The Liles’ came over, and the boys went swimming with Apollo. Apollo made Scout tired, so Scout went inside and rested. The boys were in the pool for a good hour and then into the swim spa to warm up. Robin, Mary, Amy, Joe, and I sat around the patio and talked the whole time.
There was a lot of giggling going on here.
Robin came over to assist Mary in getting our summertime party invitations ready. She uses Zazzle and does a great job.
After everyone departed, Mary and I went to the pool and the swim spa. All was well until we got a call with bad news. We headed to Jan’s house to share with her in person (news you did not want to message or call someone else).
After getting home, we started to watch a movie but gave up.
