Turn on the AC, Please!

It looks like the dreaded 100 plus degree days have arrived to stay. Today will be the third or fourth in a row in the 105 range. The ten day forecast has all highs coming in at over 100, with tomorrow being the hottest at 108. I 've decided post pics of a few of my plants now, and then repost more of the same plants in a few weeks. It should be interesting to compare the pics and see how they are handling the heat.

John, Good idea...I think I will take pictures now and compare them to what the plants will look like come July. The heat is a killer, I can't wait for September. I used to live in Alaska and I remember feeling this way about their winters. I do hope my plants make it through. I have been watering in the afternoon, but I think I am going to start watering in the morning.

Thanks for dropping by, I am enjoying your very good blog. After reading your blog I will never complain about our summers again! I am all for the container gardening. Very handy here in our summers where we have water restrictions. I want to link to your site for some encouragement to plant at least some tomatoes next summer. It is now winter - and wet.
