Yep, it's STILL hot
Itty bitty eggplants! I'm working every night on keeping to garden alive. The old wives tale of not putting your plants to bed with wet feet just isn't swaying me much. The ground is so darn hot by sun down anyway and if I water in the mornings, the plants look scalded all day from the evaporating moisture.
The eggplant is in a row I didn't put the woodchip mulch down on and the weeds are out growing the produce just like they have done every year on me. I plan to do this whole front garden in the back to eden wood chip plan next season. Possibly the bigger gardens too, we'll see.
Not really too much has been going on here on the farm. It's horribly hot and with the brief storms rolling thru, the humidity has now hit us. The evenings were nice as it cooled down until that darn humidity rolled in. Now, even 70F is uncomfortable with the sticky air. I wasn't looking forward to that, the air that you wear. I would have gladly passed on that this season, hot or not. Oh well, the good times never last, LOL.
I'm actually pretty pleased with myself, I've managed to get a couple small side jobs done around the area and I'm just $50 short for my bills for the month. I don't think I'll have too much of a hard time with $50. I've got a couple problems with my little purple farm truck I'm trying to figure out. I think I need a battery and a solinoid. The barneymobile freaked out on me Tuesday afternoon. Always something around here, LOL At least I've managed to keep all the rest of the critters alive thru this nasty heat!
