I went out to the garden around 8 a.m. to do some weeding (nut grass), turn the compost pile and pick some yard longs and okra. In the hour or so it took me to do that, I managed to totally soak a T-shirt, shorts and socks with sweat.
Just a few minutes ago I went out again to put some peat pots together with some compost to start more cucumber seeds since the ones I put in the garden 2 weeks ago are fading fast due to the heat. I was working in the shade of my 2nd story porch and took the thermometer from the porch and set it in the garden by my sweet basil plant. It took me about 1/2 hr. to do this little bit of work and when I looked at the temp. on the thermometer, it showed 108*.
I don't know about the rest of you good folks, but I'm just about fed up with high temperatures, high humidity and nut grass. Fall can't get here fast enough.
