Hotter again today
Despite regular watering during the hot/dry week, I see today that the fall vegetables have finally given up. The brassicas, with heads only about a week from harvesting size, are wilting. The peas that had been starting a 2nd flush are turning yellow.
I picked some late tomatoes, threw a bunch of the scarred ones on the ground for the thirsty varmints, letting them have the last zukes, too, if they stay away from the netted butternuts.
Final melons finally ripening in the hot, just in time for it to turn too cool for melons
FIgure I’ll just leave stuff in the ground for now, won’t be doing more planting until spring.
