How did it get to be July already?

5 months ago

I swear, it was just March and I was all happy it was warming up a bit. Now the forecast for tomorrow is 94 with a heat index of 106! Geez mareez! Had to go down to Publix today at around 2 p.m. and the car didn't even cool down before I got there, and it's a tiny car! Even with the air cranking, the dashboard thermometer said it was 101. I don't know if that was inside or outside, but it felt like inside!

Garden is going wild, and I can't seem to get out there before it gets too hot in the morning. Mosquitoes are too bad if I go out too early. I garden 5 minutes at a time - run out, do one tiny thing, then run back in. Had to water this morning, and luckily, there was a breeze blowing. I wanted to hold the hose up over my head!

I think the time has come for me to start parting with some larger plants. I just can't haul those things in and out for storms and freezes anymore. Of course, I still have small starts of everything, so I won't be losing anything but an aching back! LOL

How is summer treating y'all?
