Friday frustrating ?

This weather is frustrating to say the least. Wednesday was off the charts hot and a major thunderstorm cropped up right before LN's semi-finals in soccer started. We waited for over an hour before they called game before ours that had 19 min left. They then postponed her game till tonight. The storm raged for quite awhile do good call.
Thursday again high heat and humidity with a bad storm in the evening. My garden appreciated it.


This morning I went to garden early to plant red sweet potatoes and work up some weeds. I got half the row mulched but ran out of paper for under straw. I'll finish it later.


Lettuce is looking great.
I was sweating and figured another humid day after working a few hours.



Tomatoes are growing well with flowers and fruit on some.


I checked my 3 blueberry bushes on the way to the house. 1st bush is turning . All are loaded down.



After showering I ran errands expecting the worst but heat has moderated. Overcast and hot but lower humidity with slight wind. So frustrating to figure out what to do. I hide inside doing skirt work or in the barn where it's cooler during the worst of the heat and close house up early to keep it cooler than outside. AC cost too much and makes me cough and sneeze. I hate it but will cave soon I'm sure.

  1. Isn't it a little early for you to be getting socked with all that heat and humidity?

    Wow, your garden looks G-R-E-A-T! Our blueberry bushes aren't even fully leafed out yet and look at your multitudinous amounts of berries turning already!

    1. MamaPea, it's never too early in Delaware with the coast half hour or less from us for humidity.
      The garden is a work in progress which I hope to keep up in the worst of summer. Living with so many Amish near us vegetables are so cheap and plentiful sometimes I don't see the point of killing myself. I know, I know, suck it up buttercup! and I hope too!

  2. It was hot here too yesterday. Rain is due again for us. I would love to have blueberry bushes. They do not grow here due to the lime stone in the ground.

    1. The blueberries enjoy the ground I put them in because it is a natural drain for my property so they benefit from each inch of rain as the runoff courses through their area.
