And summer again!

Now after that really great cool-weather tease, we've had a week straight of 90's heat, with unwavering sunshine & humidity! At the end of the day, I can trace the lines of salt where my sweat has migrated all over my shirt. Tomatoes & eggplants are loving it, all the peppers are turning red at once, and the watermelons & canteloupes are ready to harvest! Summer's finale maybe?

I'm doing my best to keep the fall greens irrigated-- this is not spinach's favorite weather. We may have a delay in some of those crops, as I will have to plant all over again when these greens decide to "bolt"... but cold weather will come!
