Was pretty warm today, got to 92 I think. But, the good news is that we’ve had off and on showers during the day and some more tonight. I just went outside after the last one came thru, and we’ve got about a quarter inch so far. We are having another brief shower now, but that should do it for tonight.
We really needed the rain, it was 10 days ago that we had our last good shower. Had to get out and water the gardens again Friday as things were getting bit crispy. This natural watering will give everything a nice boost.
It’s also supposed to drop down into the 80s for the rest of the week, but will be more humid. It’s been a very warm, dry summer so far.
I spent some time yesterday staking up my peppers as they were getting a bit too heavy, I was worried about them tumping over in windy, wet conditions. Some are about 2ft tall now, and are putting out some fruit now.
It seems I’m also putting about 10 stakes a day up on my tomatoes, they’re getting quite large now, and somewhat unwieldy. Thankfully it looks like they’re finally putting on more flowers than before. It could be because it hasn’t been so blazing hot the last few days.
