And, honestly, I can’t complain. I pulled in a wagon load (literally) of Sugar Baby watermelons, Amish melons (cantaloupe), and lemon cucumbers today.
It. Was. So. Hot.
Beyond hot. I’ve lived in Alabama my whole life, so I’m accustomed to the heat and humidity which might suffocate others.
This is different. Record breaking heat (as if our summers aren’t hot enough!)
My poor plants are withering in the garden.
So, I picked all that I could, and we’ll be tilling the garden under this weekend. Giving up the fight.
But, not before we enjoy a few Green Zebra tomatoes.
And some more eggplants, red bell peppers, and Yellow Jubilee tomatoes.
You know you’re in trouble when the eggplant, tomatoes, and peppers can’t take the heat!
I’m starting to plan my fall garden… and I’m dreaming of cooler days.
