My Daily Blog for 2020 July / Siloi: Daily Blog
2020 Garden of 1993 Emails. My famous July 2020 activity is my 2020 veggie garden of printed 1993 emails of mine. My veggie garden uses paper (3 layers of paper or newspaper) as mulch to prevent weeds from growing. This year I used printed 1993 emails. My freshman year of college, 1993, was the first year ever that university students had email, so these emails are historic. I saved some. My 1993-95 emails are from long-time friends from my elementary school in New York, from my high school in Pennsylvania, and from the University of Illinois (Urbana-Champaign). Now, gourds are sprouting between the emails. My garden also has sprouts of zucchini, pumpkins, watermelon, cucumbers, potatoes, and basil. Some veggie plants have quickly grown big from seed, in only 30 days. (See photos of veggies sprouting between emails in my daily blog.)
Lake Michigan Beach. July has had many lovely hot summer beach days, along Lake Michigan. It's a desolate beach with plenty of room for social distancing. The afternoon air has been hot, 85-90 degrees F (29-32 degrees C). The lake water has been warm, 70-75 degrees F (21-23 degrees C). A few days are cloudy, rainy, and or windy with a wavy lake. Most days are sunny and the lake is calm and flat. (See beach photos in my daily blog.)
Roadside Wildflowers. My July 2020 daily blog includes photos of roadside wildflowers, including Michigan's native flowers and exotic invasive flowers. Native flowers include Milkweeds, Coneflowers, and Queen of the Prairie. Exotic flowers include Chicory, Queen Anne's Lace, Teasel, and Daylilies. (See roadside wildflower photos, in my daily blog.)
Enjoy your Summer!
