Heat wave continues... A month of tropical feeling humidity. Wow! Feels like mid 90s at 11am.

Always so cool to see how Corn grows.

WOW, it's not usually that hot up there, is it? Pretty typical for Kansas. You're a lot more energetic than I am, I need to go dig potatoes but the heat just saps all my energy.

Oh trust me... I think I aged 10 years from the last 5 days. Pure misery. Disgusting. I rushed to get those potatoes and I'm out there 5 minutes at a time. Like you said, it drains me out big time.

Heat Waves are typical here, getting to 100° is not. Whats unique about this last heat wave is the dewpoints. In Kansas or even here we'll get the 90s temps but its drier... our dewpoints were in the 70s! HUMID MUGGY and that meant it really felt like 106°! Sick..

And there's a haze in the air every single day for last 4 weeks.

Panoramic View of my Garden beds. You can see Banana plant on deck & Lone corn Stalk in center. Everything so green!

Best thread of 2013. I am closing on my first home at the end of August in NJ. Do you think I will have enough time to plant something for this season or is it too late? If so, what do you suggest? I think tomatoes might be my only option this year...

Thanks. Funny, I was already thinking about how in 2 months or so I'll be pulling things up preparing for fall. LOL! Season is past half way done here and if you're closing at the end of August thats waaaay too late. Think Fall crops... Lettuce, beans, Broccoli, ect.
Fall and Winter Vegetable Gardens

But if you're moving in and they didnt have a veggie garden, I would forget planting things this year and instead spend time this fall preparing the area you want so its ready for Spring planting. :-)
