Here in North Texas, we have had temps since mid may approaching 100 degrees. It played heck with our gardens. Within the last week, we have started getting some rain showers with much cooler air and badly needed moisture. My garden is beginning to look like a garden again instead of a war zone. We typically complain about the heat and the drought, but we realize it is just a normal climatic condition due to where we live.
I've noticed on all the former major news networks, they are reporting a "severe" heat wave is present in the North and North Eastern parts of the country. They say "we are setting up cooling centers for residents to get out of the heat. The heat is approaching the 90's and may even hit 100 degrees".
I'm just wondering how the gardeners in the "Heat Wave" areas are making out. Is it killing your crops the same way it killed or delayed mine? I think last year, you had a mild, wet summer resulting in late blight. Are your crops surviving the heat any better than they survived the late blight?
