It ain't bragging if you do it. And do it 2 days early.

That is crazy! We are having a mini heat wave over here...compounded with what seems like abnormally low rainfall. I've checked the drought watch, and supposedly it is normal... It seems we got heavier rain in spring in previous years.

But I may be sensitive since I have SO MANY NEW PLANTS TO WATER! ;D I'm getting a lot of exercise walking around watering things. Most of the things I planted are for my ornamental garden, so what is going on with the veggies:
Spinach is going strong. I planted two types. One bolted and I ate as much as I could and composted the rest of it. I've been eating a LOT of spinach for the past week and a half.
Snow peas...oh the irony. Will I EVER master these? I planted them with inoculant and they are almost tall enough to climb...but we're having a dry spell it seems AND a heat wave?

Chard and Beets - These have peeped up. It hurts me to have to water them. Rainwater is best.

Onion, garlic and lettuce - My lettuce bed is FULL of tiny weeds. What the heck? I weeded like MAD yesterday and of course watered all this stuff. I can't remember if onion or garlic is the heavy feeder, but I'll be putting down some slow release fertilizer today. Yes I know. But I'm too tired from running around with the hose to cart compost over to the veggie garden.

Fun and Games. I'm hoping all the heat means a BUMPER year for okra, tomatoes (yes trying AGAIN) and eggplant, which I LOVE. I put down some compost last year for my squash/pumpkin bed. If it really looks like rain, I'll uncover the patch and put down the seeds. Love pumpkins, too.

The weeds is one reason we went to strictly cantainer gardening this year. I cant' believe how everything is coming up. Now I have to start thinning the cukes and squash out. Oh I hate to do it, but I know I have no choice.

It does get hot. Squash taking a defensive posture.



The center section of about 300 containers to water up to twice a day until drippers are installed.

33 degrees this morning with frost. I went running out like a mad man spraying water on my garden, when I grabbed my wife's hair dryer and the 100 foot extension cord she stopped me with that "seriously" look women seem to learn in school.

Everything survived, bright sunshine and 58 degrees today.
