It’s late October, and we’re still having near-record breaking heat. This is ridiculous.
I went away for a week, and set the sprinkler to run two extra days while I was gone, in hopes that the vegetables wouldn’t suffer. And they haven’t seemed to. I now have three small bell peppers on that plant; the broccoli is going great guns, and there is even one healthy-looking Brussels sprouts plant.
The tomatoes aren’t looking too good, although the plant is still in good shape. I’m not worried about them, since I didn’t plant them in the first place. I would like to work on my compost, and the tomato plant is blocking that.
I need to transplant a couple of the broccolis, for which I need some new soil. A trip to Lowes is in order.
