There is a bit of a chill in the morning air this week.  It is most welcome.  The heat of the day is still extreme, but not *quite* as hot as the past months.  With no measurable rain since the beginning of June, we've had an incredibly hot and dry summer.
The sunflowers have really taken off this last week.  It is so fun to see their happy faces shining bright in the garden!  I've filled up milk bottles in the kitchen with them and used them to decorate my booth at the market as well.
We also have an abundance of squash that I am so excited to see.  The melons continue to ripen amongst the weeks and the corn grew a foot in the last week.  While I think of corn and melons as summer treats, we'll be even happier to see them this Autumn since we've been waiting on them.  (We'll also probably be the only ones to have them at the market since everyone elses' are already ready.)

Do you have to hand water?? If not, how are your plants surviving without rain?
Humidity back the last two days....and we're heading into another stretch of 90's. But we've had enough
rain this season to keep things green!

We just had our first night of heavy rains in over a year! I think it ended up being 2 1/2 inches of rain.

There is a chance we'll get some of the remnants of Hurricane Issac so hopefully that will bring rain this weekend.

I didn't plant any fall veggies since it has been so dry.
