Despite the ridiculous weather the garden is doing reasonably well. The mints are thriving which is amazing and the Happy Patch is looking fabulous. Sadly, the zucchini and squash are looking crispy. They have tents and three drinks a day, but I’m not sure they will survive today’s heat.
Interestingly, the squash and zucchini at the Happy Patch are doing very well. I suspect the difference is that at home they are in galvanised beds. They heat up quickly!
We have been keeping the compost alive by putting three ice-cream container size blocks of ice on it every morning. Worms seem to be increasing and there are a lot of seedlings popping up.
I also turned the front yard into a tent city today to try and save the pumpkins, watermelon and tomatoes. Hope it helps.
Can’t believe I am sacrificing my sheets to keep plants alive!
