Now that the summer months are almost over I have to say it was tough and HOT! I did very well maintaining all the gardens even during the 110 degree span, but I lost control when I had to leave for several weeks and the temperature actually soared to 115 degrees (heat index)!! If I had known the weather would get hotter I would have scheduled my back and forth trips differently, but as we all know… the weather can be unpredictable and this year was extremely hot here – very unusual! So today I arrived back up north here and the WIND is whipping around like crazy ….. unreal!
I am very surprised the Nasturtium in the huge pot on the deck survived and since it was cooler this past weekend it is actually blooming and thriving. I bet it prefers the cooler temperatures – I know I do!
The various peppers finally took off and I was able to harvest some –
Nothing like fresh salsa with your own homegrown jalapeno peppers! The tabasco peppers are still tiny and this is the first year I grew them. I am excited for their final harvest.
I did have a little fun with the camera and took some neat pictures which I will have to add to my Flickr account ….
