I am MELTING. This heat is starting to get on my last nerve. I have never been a morning person. Until this summer that is. The only time that I can get anything done outside is to get up with the chickens... Oh wait... we don't have chickens yet! LOL Well, you get what I mean.
It's already past 90* before 10am around here and steadily climbs till the sun starts to set. But hey, I know I'm not alone here. The entire south is baking and Fall cannot come fast enough for any of us. I think this is the first time in my life that I'm looking forward to being able to wear a pair of jeans without thinking "Why in the world would anyone do this on purpose?" Wearing long pants in this heat is just torture.
I want to be able to get out in the yard and start some seeds in the garden. I can't see it yet though. Even though the calendar says its time to start them the temperatures say No Way! The plans for a big Fall garden are beginning to fade as badly as I myself am in this heat. It's supposed to be time to be putting in broccoli, tomato, cauliflower and cabbage plants among other things. There is no way any of that is going to have a shot at making it in temperatures over 100 degrees daily. Yes, I know that if I had shade cloth we might have some luck, but we don't , so....
With finances the way that they are, I had some real hopes to be able to supplement our preps with the garden this year. But it doesn't look very promising. Heck at this point though, who knows... we may have a really warm fall and winter with the way things have been going. I'm not giving up just yet!
