Feelin' Hot Hot Hot

It is mighty hot out there. I got up early this morning and thought about going running but decided to head out to the farm for some garden work instead. It was about 75 degrees when I was driving out at 7am and it quickly got up to the 95-100 degree mark. At least today there is a bit of a wind but hello hot, humid Kansas summer in the beginning of June!

I first harvested some lettuce. I don't think we'll get much more, with all this heat it is quickly turning bitter. I then went to town weeding and mulching. I dug out some of the tomato cages, staked some of the bigger tomatoes and then planted some winter squash and some more basil. I officially filled up the entire garden space.

  1. Beautiful! I just added 10 pepper plants to our garden! This hot weather should be so good for them but from your comments I need to pick my lettuce too. I'm such a novice at this thing called gardening.
