Ugh! Yech! Blah!
When did I move from a beautiful sunny inland down with delightfully cooling ocean breezes coming through the mountain gaps every evening. To hot and humid disgustingness! I may as well be living in hurricane alley. Lest you think I am exaggerating about the weather, here is what happened to a cup my husband left in his car during his travels yesterday.
This weather is taking it's toll on my edible garden and everything seems to be barely holding on. I am nervous about the few fall plants I sowed this week not knowing how long this will last. I don't want to lose plants like I did in the spring when the wind took out two tomato plants. For the most part the native plants are supposed to be dormant in the heat, hopefully they will bounce back when cooler weather arrives.
Very lovely photos. We had a frost last night and I left the towel on my tomatoes tonight too. Still we should have a lovely leaf season if it stays warm during the day and cool at night. I'm just not ready for 37 degrees yet.
My tomatoes and peppers and herbs are doing well up here. Still warm. I know I have to start pulling the basil and start making more pesto as it will go to seed soon and I love having it frozen. I LOVE your pics of the sunflower seeds. That is soooo cool.
