our summer garden survives the heat wave
we just survived a heat wave of about 112 degrees over the week! there were power outages in many counties. never thought i would see the day of brown-outs in america! a serious situation where many seniors were hospitalized and many residents were unprepared.
i thought our garden would be scorched but our vegetables seem okay. our garden has been bountiful!
check out our first summer harvest of tomatoes, squash, zucchini, and lately, our baby melons--maybe they are cantaloupes because they just sprouted from the compost (and we thought they were squash!) next in line are red and green bell peppers.
that's syrel with our squash, maybe a pumpkin pala.
