The Heat Continues
The days are still hot, but it doesn't look like the temperatures are going to climb up to 112 degrees as previously predicted. I'm grateful for "only" 107!
Every day after class I come home to begin watering. It's the hottest part of the day and I want to get the entire garden at once, but that's not possible. So I put the sprinkler on whatever section looks the droopiest and start there. The garden is pretty stressed by all the heat, but most of the plants are hanging in there so far.
The pond is looking dismal, though. I expect it to completely dry out this year and that's always such a sad thing. I'm already crossing my fingers for lots of rain this coming winter.
