These boiling temperatures have not been so good to my little garden.
I started it in early Spring and, although I had high hopes, things aren't going quite
as well as they could. Most of the sprouts have grown to be tall, yet they are wilting.
I just water them try to keep 'em kicking. It seems to
keep most of them alive-barely.
This Summer somehow seems hotter than usual as of the past
week or so. It's reached that point
where you can't go outside without feeling like your baking...
when you open your mouth it feels like your in an oven breathing in steam
(trying to think cold thoughts!).
So I can imagine how the garden must feel being outside directly in
the sun for most of the day.
I am happy that from the little seeds I planted, tall plants have come up
and are growing. Just not all of them look great.
Since they are struggling, I will spare you a photo of their little
'Death Valley' looking selves.
What I did want to share, however, is this...
This is my great harvest from my tomato plant.
At first I was disappointed but, it's actually kind of funny to me now... my
one little lonely tomato.
I guess I won't be needing to pull out a recipe for tomato-cheese casserole
or even fried green tomatoes anytime soon.
I started growing (or should I say 'attempted growing') tomatoes about two months
ago and this is all I've gotten. But I have hope that more will follow.
I'm praying for rain and some cloudy days.
How is your garden dealing with
Have a blessed day!
