Well things have cooled down a little, only 95. We had 2 solid weeks of 100+ weather, and the garden took a hit. It's always hard this time of the year, I really have to decide what will live and what will get crispy. Ever year I plant more and more drought tolerant plants and heat lovers. The tomaotes, peppers, squash, all love this heat, the cucs, corn, strawberries and herbs have a hard time. Still getting tomatoes off at least 8 of the plants, and peppers from 5 of the plants. However, we did have a few surprises, potatoes being the big one!! Can't believe they made it, I thought for sure they were goners. TPW made some pretty tasty potato salad, I have been able to dig up about 20 per week. The fig tree is in full effect, trying to beat the birds is hard, but I have managed to stay one step ahead of them.
And to think, I thought that we would lose this Lisbon Lemon tree. When we first moved in it looked like it was going to fall over at any moment. With a little pruning and some food this tree is kicking out large lemons ALL the time!! TPW made us lemonade all last week.
