This has been a hot and dry summer, and despite the Autumnal Equinox on Thursday, we still have little feeling of Fall here. Just draught… think we are down 3.5+". Finally tossed out the last of the hanging baskets – just too tired of watering them when we only see them on the weekends due to sports practices every night of the week.
Temperatures are to reach 90 again tomorrow and that might set a record. Not that I rejoice at the end of warm weather; it is just not the same when everything looks tan instead of green.
I did plant some more mesclun and arugula a few weeks ago, but watering it became a pain and not much has germinated. Need to eat what there is tomorrow so it won’t have been a complete waste of my time.
