Howdy Folks:

I feel like the dog in the pic. Today it was in the high 90's and just west of here it hit 104 degrees. The rest of the week it is expected to be 98+ here close the to coast with its' humidity to boot. The heat has just about stopped the strawberries and the tomato production is suffering also. Cucumbers are just loving the heat as are the watermelons. The squash are doing OK with some production and one of the greens (forget to ID it when we planted) is looking great. Several of the banana peppers are continuing to produce after a slow start. Keeping a good watering schedule is key.

God Bless, Ward and Mary.

I'm feeding my chickens crushed ice to keep them from laying hard boiled eggs.

How hot is it ?

Post  Ray'ssfg on 7/23/2010, 2:06 am

Hey Boffer,
We have the oposite Down Under at present. Down to 0c nearly every night for a month, really cool bleak days with a bit of rain. We normally only get about 5 nights each winter that cold.
Still the winter veg's keep on growing.
Ruth and I are coming to Pittsburgh in September for a month to visit our kids and Grand Children, so I hope it has cooled down by then.
I love the photo of the dog.
Cheers Ray

When I'm working outside I usually have a small child's wading pool that I fill with water for the dogs. I sometimes put ice in it, but 1 of the dogs loves to "bob" for ice, so she gets all the ice out and it ends up in the grass! Then the other dog lays on it!

Cute pup!!!

It's so hot that I've been watering twice a day, 20-30 minutes each with my misting system. I have been fairly punctual about when it starts up... and the local birds have figured it out. I got some REALLY dirty bird looks the other day when I was late in turning it on!

I'm not making this up --

A few years ago, the Tampa Tribune published directions on how to bake chocolate chip cookies on the dashboard of your car (while the car is parked in the sun, of course) -- apparently they came out pretty good, although the car smelled like cookies for weeks.
