Garden Tuesday, hot weather update

It has been unseasonably hot here, and it is really showing in the garden.....

The rhubarb stalks are fine, but the leaves are baked crisp.

The blackberries are blanching in the sun.

The current bush, is protesting!

All the lettuce plants bolted.

The tomatoes outgrew the bed.

The peas are finished for the year, they dried on the trellis strings.

The potatoes are beginning to die back, this seems a bit early to me. PS we have a volunteer cucumber.

The swiss chard is doing quite well after being sun burnt about ten days ago.

We are looking forward to cooler weather, for our garden and for us! How is your garden growing?

If you like what you see here, we would appreciate it if you told your friends, if not, tell us! Our goal is to share relevant information that you will enjoy and use for yourself and your family. 

Thank you for visiting such a busy backyard, as always we appreciate your time when you visit and your wonderful comments!

  1. Your garden is looking good... so nice to have things growing that can be used. Our garden is acting very different from other years... some things doing well, others not.

    1. Since we only garden for the two of us, large harvests are not mandatory. But it is more enjoyable to garden in temperatures one is used to fir their community. Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate it.

  3. Well my garden got flooded 3 or 4 times this season. Lots and lots of weeds. We have had a cool summer, not good for us mid-western gardeners!

  4. I just had to toss quite a few of the blackberries I was picking from sun scald - so sad. :( The zucchini and tomatillos sure like the heat, though!

    1. So unusual for this part of the world, this is more like the climate where I lived in Yakima WA for about 20 years. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. It has been hot as blazes here too, but thankfully we have had enough rain to keep all the plants happy. --Rocquie
