  • I feel sorry for the plants that have to stay out in this sun. At least our pets can move to the shade and have plenty of water to drink. Hot dry days has just about pushed my garden to its' limits.

    To answer anyone who does not know me, I don't like to use city water unless it is to save perennials or newly planted seed. I have resisted planting anything in a while.

    Even the plants I have from our garden meetings have stayed potted until this heatwave breaks.

  • My garden is done for, the only thing that grew well in it this summer is grass. There is always next year. The one thing I did learn this summer is that my green pepper plants did well in a raised garden, but they are just getting in gear and producing.

  • According to "experts", the ideal air temperature for peppers is in the 74-77 degree range, similar for tomatoes, so I would not blame the plants for shutting down a bit during this record setting heat. AT least I did not blame mine!

    I am shut down during it also which is why grass is one of my best crops too! I am not waiting to next year though. I plan to nurse my existing plants back and if it ever starts raining on a regular basis, I will even plant some seeds. (after I get through the grass, of course)
