What were my squash plants doing tonight?
Holding their little leaves up like funnels and calling out to the rain gods, "Please be kind and shower us with an all night steady rain that we will catch and use to quench our thirsty roots."
(Okay, so I'm getting a little funny. Too many things going on and too much to do this time of year.)
We had 85 degrees in the shade on the north side of our house today so I know it was above 90 in the garden. Still and all, it's nothing compared with the gawd-awful heat some folks are suffering through. The garden is super-dry and we'll be setting up the sprinkler before the sun gets up tomorrow morning.
Hang on, all you parched plants. Help is on the way!
