Our first weekend away, and a what a scorcher it was! While we burned up at the beach, I worried that our plants might be swooning at home. The best news? Our watering system worked perfectly and our veggie garden survived the heat. In fact, it thrived!
The peppers and eggplants have exploded with fruit, the cucumbers are all aflower and the tomatoes are coming in too. Sure, they're small and green, but they will become bright red and ripe for picking soon enough! (We might get our first cherries by mid-July.) Can't wait! Store bought just can't compare to our home-grown heirlooms.
