There has been a lot of complaining about the heat on many garden blogs I have visited in the last few weeks. Now it's my turn to complain. It was 113 F yesterday and 111 F today! It is supposed to be over 110 F (45 C) for the next six days. We are getting to the time of year where it doesn't go below 85 F at night, and soon won't go below 90 F at night. And when the wind blows at 110 F it's like a blast furnace. Get me outta here! My trips to the flower garden are short-lived and limited to early morning or evening. But the plants that love the heat seem unfazed.
