Is this for Real?
This stretch of summer like weather has us all wondering, "Is this for real", or will we soon be brought back to reality.

So what do we do as gardeners?

Interesting - Surprising - Shocking? Market report for homes near Hamburg in Lexington Kentucky, June 25 through December 22
Realtors expect price to be the most important thing in this market to get a house sold quickly.  What is surprising about this analysis of the homes near Hamburg is that price was not the most important.
