We are sweltering under a heat wave the likes of which have never been experienced in our area. Ever. I fear that the morning and evening watering of the vegetable garden and flowers will not be enough to save them from the oppressive heat. I've already had the spinach and lettuce bolt before I was able to pull them and the poor daisies and belles are hanging their heads and crying for relief. I have moved them all to a shady place but I don't think it will be enough. I just hate to see the glory of the garden cut short again this year. Usually it's the cool wet weather that causes a late start and an early end. We'll just have to see what becomes of it all. The weather report for the next week is still in the high 90's and for us that is still h.o.t. It is expected to be 88degrees at midnight tonight..Yikes!
The only good thing as of now is that it is 79degrees in the house and I am hopeful for a restful nights sleep! Also, we have tomatoes reddening up very quickly now and the hubs picked the first batch of Romanitas...these are the only ones that made it into the house:
How does your garden grow?
