Here are the totals from one nights harvest:
10 ears of corn
and one lonely zucchini
The tomatoes consisted of 68 Rutgers & 25 Large red Cherries:
20 Better Boys
Even if we didn't get another tomato off the vine this year, I believe the tomato garden
has been a rousing success:
Now the heat is on. It's 1:30pm and the remote thermometer for the garden is showing 105 degrees. Ouch.
Today I'm going to go outside, bake with my plants in the garden, and start shooting a video on using shade cloth and five tips to help tomatoes make it through the heat wave. I hope to have it up by tomorrow on YouTube.
Due to the extreme heat taking over, we'll certainly see a reduction in the daily harvest, but there are things we can do to help the plants make it through and go right back into good production following the heat wave and have a great fall harvest as well. So be looking for that video coming soon.
In the mean time ya'll stay cool and hydrated if you're working out in the garden in this heat. It's brutal.
