    It’s Wednesday morning and the humidity has gone, leaving us with a much cooler morning. We had a light shower this morning, which we needed. Our hay was out last night, and hopefully the rain didn’t affect it too much.

    Daylilies just don’t get the respect they deserve. They’re like peanut butter. From the time we’re young, peanut butter has been a staple in our diets. But for all the pieces of bread it’s been on, or maybe because of all the bread it’s been on, it just hasn’t been elevated to its rightful place in our world.

    It’s another hot day with high humidity here in Michigan. Every day the temperature has been in the 90’s. Yesterday afternoon we did get a much-needed rain shower. We would have needed to start watering the garden, so the rain was much appreciated. Because our house is surrounded by shade trees and a wraparound porch, we don’t get too much sun shining in our windows. Our living room, dining room, and kitchen are all open concept, so the breeze flows through really nicely.

    When I first started gardening, I was at a local independent garden center with my grandma. She was looking for something specific to plant in the little area in front of her condo. We walked by the Japanese maples and both admired how beautiful they were.

    Before we left, she said to me, “You need one of those for your place.”

    For years, it’s taken us half the summer or more to get our gardens and yard in shape after winter gives way to spring. We have an acre here and while there’s a fair amount of lawn to mow, the gardens take up more of the available space than grass.

    I wasn’t always a gardener. Oh, we have always had a small vegetable garden “out back” and I planted a petunia or two up around the house, but hard core gardening? Not until 2005 did I make it an obsession.

    It’s July 1 - today we enter the month of July, and 2020 is already halfway over. It has been quite a year to remember. I do not think many of us want to repeat such a year. When I see people in town shopping with masks on, what I miss the most is not being able to see a smile on a stranger’s face as I pass by, say “hi,” and smile. It’s hard to tell if other people are smiling or frowning under a mask. I will be so glad when life is all back to normal. It has been such a tiring year. My husband Joe is still laid off from the factory but stays busy helping son-in-law Mose with remodeling.

    Large gatherings lead to more COVID cases

    Dear Editor,

    I believe most residents of Paulding County understand the entire world, including this county, is in the midst of a global pandemic. However, from the careless masses refusing to wear a mask or practice safe distancing to our clueless leaders organizing gatherings like the John Paulding Summer Bash, we see behavior and plans which are appalling.

    It is Tuesday evening here in Michigan at the Eicher homestead. All is quiet with only son Kevin and daughter Loretta home with Joe and me. The rest of our children here at home went to a wedding for supper.

    Daughter Susan and Mose are making living quarters in the finished side of our pole barn. They are over at their home tonight working on their garden, house, etc. We are enjoying having our grandchildren living next door to us for the time being.
