The weather is going to hit upper 90’s this coming week, and I’ve tried to get all things growing ready for that as much as I can.
I’m holding over 60 plants for next year’s plant sale so I had to dig them into the ground or face a couple of months of multiple daily waterings.
Things are doing well, but with nature there are always interesting things to observe. Two of my five Knockout roses are not blooming, and someone is eating holes in the leaves, the red Clematis have holes as well, and one tank of tomatoes are almost three feet tall while the tank next to them aren’t a foot yet – same soil, same watering. Hmm.
I went on a Master Gardener field trip last week to Squam Lakes Natural Science Center and Kirkwood Gardens in the northern part of the state. It was my first visit, and I found it interesting. A friend asked if I thought my twelve-year old grandson would like it because she has grandkids visiting this summer. Uh, the answer to that would be ‘no’ because there were a lot of things for a gardener to observe but not a lot of action.
Today, before I start any other projects, I have to renew a prescription and thought I’d share an observation. I discovered something by reading the fine print on the documentation, at least in my case, that is stapled to the bag that contains the prescription. Typed on the documentation is a field entitled ‘Days Supply.’ For the 90 day prescription it reads 68, and for the 30 day prescription, it reads 21.
I think I can safely say that most of us only use and pay for prescription medicine if it is required to maintain our health. I’m wondering what big pharma thinks I’m suppose to do for those 9 or 22 days or how they explain a co-pay for medicine for which I don’t receive a full allotment. I’ve sent a letter asking for clarification, but so far no answer – big surprise.
Dealing with holes in plants is certainly easier than trying to understand insurance and pharmaceuticals so I think I’ll go get another load of mulch – that I can handle.
Happy Monday and remember to check the fine print. 🙂
