Tuesday Trip to Kansas, City

Just took my Son, Daughter in Law and grandchildren to Crown Center, Kaleidoscope, Legoland Discovery Center and SEA LIFE Aquarium in  Kansas City. The area was really nice and made a nice day trip.  You could easily spend a weekend in the area with the theaters and if that was not enough Union Station in the area and linked to Crown Center.  I will be back to explore it later.

Geary County State Park Water Fall

Below is the map to the water fall at Geary County State Park.  This is an easy hike and not far from Junction City, KS and is actually a pretty area .The parking lot is not too difficult but to make it easy to find use State Lake Road. You will not be able to get to the parking area via the Main park entrance. If you are into Geocatching this is the closest cache in the area: N 38° 54.255 W 096° 51.636.

Veggie Time

Summer time has arrived and the vegetable have finally made their debut. The spring time vegetables were a disappointment this year due the early extreme record breaking high heat. The garden is now making up for the lack of lettuce and some other cool season vegetables. Squash has now come plentiful and corn and tomatoes will soon be here. Image

Summer Time in the Garden

This year garden is doing rather well. Rain fall and the has been an issue. No Chinese Cabbage this year; It all went to seed. The squash is starting to really some out I can not wait until the melons come. I really do miss fresh melons. The covering of the pumpkins with the insect barrier worked really well. I had some problems with the squash bugs when the plants got too big but with some spraying and hand picking I was able to prevent die off.ImageImageImage
