Garden Gab, Week 18
Cool weather and rain…where for art thou?
It’s been crazy hot here, it’s been 100 deg F or higher for a while now. It’s been years since it’s been this hot for this long. I believe the last time we had a heat wave like this it was during the late 1990’s. It feels like Hades, or at least Hades adjacent.
If you live somewhere that’s cool and pleasant….don’t tell me. I’ll be tempted to stick my tongue out at you, the way a child does. Of course, that tongue would probably instantly burn. 😦 I’m fair skinned. I do not belong in Hades.
My ground is parched, it’s almost impossible to keep the yard watered enough that is does not crack.
My nerves are frayed, it’s hard to grow veggies in this kind of heat.
All the bean plants, except the two new types (the Royal purples and the purple hulls) are gone.
The okra freaking loves, LOVES the heat. It’s super happy.
The carrots and mint are doing just fine. The mint is flowering. 🙂 Lovely!
The peppers are doing great.
The strawberries, oh the strawberries. The strawberries are trying very hard to take over the raised garden. I believe they would like to re-name it Strawberritopia. I’ve seen the petition.
Here’s a peek at what my handsome, handy hubby has been up to in the backyard.
How is your garden doing this week?
