Hi Friends, tropical moisture is suppose to be here if you look at TV . We have had one tenth so far today. We had one tenth yesterday.
The garden is a little happier. I truly hope we do have some real rain from this little band of moisture. Above is our cayenne pepper. They are doing pretty good this year. They like it hot!! A good part of our garden in container gardening b/c of the critters.
We also have a large front garden that is in the ground and we have only lost some from the critters there. That is the garden that is hurting from the heat the most. That garden has egg plant that is doing OK. Sweet bell peppers that is not doing good at all b/c of the heat. Hot peppers that are struggling. Those are the Thai Hot peppers. They are trying but really not doing great.
The Strawberries have just been wonderful . They are sweet and bountiful. They have been giving since March. Since it has been so hot not like 30 or 40 a day but like 20 to 4 or 5 a day. We have been eating berries from the garden everyday since the 10th of March.
The tomatoes have tasted real good but they have not produced like the years 09 and 10 did. A lot fewer in number. A lot of them split when you pick them. those get eaten tho too!!
It has not been the good garden year people. Everything has suffered from the heat!! Well all most everything!!!
Have a great week-end my Friends!!
Love coming your way, Fern
