Not my kind of heat. Was supposed to cool overnight here. I don't think so and 90F in house.

Comment by Vicky Myers yesterday

The one thermometer I saw today on a business said 107 that was in the evening. Computer says it's 85 now at 11:30 at night. Made a one day trip to work and buy food. Scored some more good deals at Walmart tonight, bird netting 14'x14' $3, nylon trellis $2, elfin thyme plants 1/2 off, 25' soaker hoses for $4. Someone donated foot long pieces of pvc pipe that was cut at a slant on one end so you can stick it into the ground and a hole on other end it was 1/2 off colored tag so got it.

This heat wave and drought is a real trouble. Saturday I hope to mow the lawn and plant some veggie seeds in hope to harvest in Fall. Yesterday went to Naturopath, on 2 more medicines. So now taking 2 vials  @ 3 and 5 pellets 1 to 2 times a day of snake.

Main fridge making noises, hope it  does not break down. I do have spare in basement but with the weathers heat, it is working harder. Looks like you are coming along with veggies, Vicky.

Spread used coffee grounds on lawn, seeing if it will help where past dogs used for pee area and also drive ants and bunny out. Bunny digging next to foundation and  eating my tiger lilies. Well it is stay inside or go to MH Mall today in metric 30C's.

I harvested a batch of bush beans, trying to get all the apricots but ladder not tall enough that I borrowed. Cleaned up the mess of going to seed radishes. I over planted one batch of cucumbers in one box so I pulled the bug eaten purple beans & munchers since they came to a halt at one set of leaves from bugs & spread out them out. So far the bush cukes in a box are looking ok even have some blooms.Lemon cukes are coming along ok even with some bug bites. Went to Bi-Mart on my birthday the 1st and scored 15 4" herbs plants for .67 each, love clearance sales of 75% off.

At least you got some rain Vicky. Nothing here in Medicine Hat, AB. Canada. We have drought here. When I drove over bridge to get home the South Saskatchewan is shrinking, see more sand bars.

With this heat and my legs recovering from accident back in May, veggie garden not planted and have a bugger bunny digging where it wants to, even next to house foundation. Some of my lilies disappearing too. Did get first cut of rhubarb and stewed it. Friend said add a box of fruit jell-o. I thought I was getting up at 9am but clock said going onto 11am my time.

That bunny might have it's days numbered, found slingshot. Almost tripping over it. Need rain here.

Think the rain stopped we get clouds that blow through and pound us then blow right on out again.

I hear thunder and rain now. Hope it doesn't over water what I watered at home. Of course it may not be doing this there. (40 miles away)Computer weather says still 90 with light rain, sounds a bit louder than light rain right now. That was a LOUD thunder and long.

Welcome Michael. I ate a couple of beans today out of the strawberry planter boxes, strawberries are hit and miss. Triple digits here so spend lots of time indoors just lazin around. Night time temp right now at 10:25 is still 90 plus a wind came up maybe get some lightning was cloudy all day but still 103 ahhhhhhhg too hot. I spent all day Thurs. lazin around so I could play in the garden all night til 3-4ish a.m. Came to city to clean office and a house tomorrow while my car is getting repaired. My apricot tree is giving me yummy cots too. But I need to borrow a fruit tree ladder so I can get the rest of them. Still no raised beds yet. grrrrr! Too hot to care. I planted some stuff in the smaller blue pots, arugala, bunching onions, maybe one other thing forgot. The purple pole plants look horrible along with some of the cukes. I planted some bush cukes in a planter box they are ok. The munchers are tiny little things w/2 leaves and all munched by bugs. Lemon cukes look a bit better and bigger. One other cuke is growing well but has bug bites all over. I need beneficials for spider mites and Thrips. Can't remember is sugar water was for thrips or something else on cukes, need to spay the jar full I made years ago to do that. And spray organic fertilizer, kelp or worm poo. I'll be 59 Wed and I fell 90 just want to lay around on the computer in this heat. My red and purple spuds are doing ok. Garlic made some scapes and are dying back. Don't want to even mention the poor looking tomato starts still on the porch that need to be put in the garden. I started a bunch, gave a bunch away and never got the rest planted yet. That ground is hard, full of weeds, needs compost etc. not at all ready for planting yet. Wind is really kicking up our there.
