I realized today that it has been over a month since I posted anything. August was miserable here. Nearly every day was over 100°f. Rain was a distant memory. (We are still the grip of a serious drought. Please send rain donations to the Great Plains.) Too hot to garden and too hot for the garden. I went to the basement and hibernated. The heat wave broke this week and highs have dropped into the low 80's which are normal for this time of the year. I grabbed my new camera and went out to see what was left of the garden. It looks a bit rough but some things have done surprisingly well. Aside from a $200! water bill last month things could have been a lot worse.
