the heat is on!
So it's super hot in Texas now despite the recent rain. Some of my sunflowers couldn't take the heat and shriveled up! My husband and I just got back into town after being gone for over a week. The garden definitely needed some tending to when we returned. While my pumpkin vines and flowers have taken over a large portion of the garden, they have yet to produce any fruit. It looks to be the same with the tomato plants which have gotten quite large...no tomatoes! The watermelons which have a mind of their own as well have several tiny watermelon fruits dangling from their crawling vines. The cilantro has finished producing and has gone back to seed. I pulled the seeds off and will dry them and save them for planting next spring. The green beans are still producing and we have gotten to eat many of them! Well I guess I will be getting my wild jungle of a garden back under control asap!
