Fry an egg on my head will ya?

August 5, 2008

It was 107 degrees here yesterday...and it doesn't really cool off much at night. I walked at 5:30 am this morning at it was still hot. We might be lucky today. It might be 105 instead. Whoohooo! Lucky us. So this is my garden right now. Ha! Well, not quite, but almost. Every year about this time I just throw my hands up in the air. Like any other professional horticulturist, I pretty much take the approach of survival of the fittest. I have no patience for watering or grooming...things must persevere on their own. I let it all go to h-e double hockey sticks and then start over in September! Of course it could still be 100 degrees in September around here. You never know. Ok, October maybe...  smile
