The Texas heat has arrived. There have been daily heat advisories for weeks now. It's far to hot to be out in the garden. By the time its cool enough (around 8pm), its time to get the boys ready for the next day. So - in as sense - the heat burned us out of the garden.
The good news though is that we timed things perfectly...glad I kept good notes. Just as the heat started to set in; most of our spring garden was done. All we have to do now is harvest the few beds still putting out and occasionally clean out a bed for fall.
Here's a look at what we are still harvesting here in the Texas heat (last few weeks):
Bell Peppers gave a good harvest and I expect more as temperatures cool.
We've also pulled 4 3-lb canteloupe from the garden and two pots full of peas, but I don't have pics.
All of these are still putting out. The roma tomatoes are still putting out as well; we just pull and use those as needed.
Summer squash could also survive this heat, but the squash bugs got those long ago. Also surviving the heat.....
It may not be so hot in other parts of the country/world, so click on over to Dapne's Dandelions Harvest Monday and see how other gardeners are fairing in their summer.
