As I write this post at 7:20pm with the sun setting across the pond behind me, it’s still a blistering 96 degrees here.
And, the humidity makes it unbearable to be outside even early or late in the day. I’m ashamed to say I haven’t checked on my garden at all in the last several days. I’ll certainly be making an early morning harvest in the morning and checking on the state of things. Personally, I wouldn’t hold it against my plants if they wilted in this heat. I can’t bear up under it.
A friend of mine summed up my feelings pretty well the other day. She said that if the guy who invented air-conditioning were still alive, and he needed a kidney, she’d give him one of hers. Yep. Me, too!
Like Maybelline, I’ve got my sights set on October.
***I wrote this post yesterday evening. I’m very happy to report that we just had a nice little downpour which cooled us off significantly. Yay!
