Is hot, yeah?

Y’all, this is the third or fourth day in a row of 100-degree heat. IN JUNE. I’m all about loving the hot weather, but this is nuts.

We’ve got the air-conditioning on as well two fans and it is still 80 degrees in here. That’s what the a/c is set on, but still. Insanity. There is no way on earth I would be able to get this house cooled down to 72 or whatever a normal person would have the a/c set to.

Surprisingly, the garden is in love with the heat. I’m watering twice a day and the plants are loving it. The tomatoes are exploding all over the place. I should probably thin them but at this point, they’re getting huge and it will be amazing if I can get the cages on. I meant to do it over the weekend, but again – hot.

Stupidly, I finished hacking up the third section, put the topsoil down, and planted the rest of the plants. In +100 degrees. That was two days ago and I’m still recovering. But now I have 16 tomato plants, 7 basil (Jillian stomped on one), 3 radishes (ditto), some peppers (maybe – they are Mystery Plants), some non-mystery peppers, 1 zucchini, 1 eggplant, and a cantaloupe.

My friend Kat is sending me some beans and I rustled up some peas that I can plant at the end of July, so we should have a very interesting harvest!

In other news, there isn’t really a lot of other news. I have been spending a crazy amount of time in the garden, though I did just lose my mind yesterday at Jo-Ann Fabrics. I have big plans to make a couple of skirts for myself and some dresses for The Jillian. We shall see how that turns out.
