Gardening in West Texas-The Heat is ON!

It has been so hot and miserable here in West Texas with temperature expected to be over 100 again today. With the heats so high everything is struggling to live and watering is happening twice a day!

I couldn't get a good picture of all three today they were finding bugs

My random cucumber plant :O) I did not plant it there but it decided to grow

Our BIG corn, not sure why he is so happy but I'll keep him ;o)
Do you have a garden?? Any great gardening tips for me in this heat!

I don't know about Texas heat compared to my desert heat. We make sure we water in the evening so that the heat doesn't dry up the water too quickly as it does during the day. I wish we could grow corn, but we always have wind here that breaks them down. I do know that if you see them wilting in the afternoon heat, give them a little more water.

I'm in Texas too, but I wish I could give you tips...this weather is something else! Watering at night is a must, but it seems to bring the mosquitoes too.

Ugh yes I hate those little buggers!

I love gardening... I have mine going every summer... the trick to have to water less often is to put some mulch down in your garden. It keeps the soil humid longer. ;)

I wish I could help out you out with some info here. I'm not the one with the green thumb. Mom gave me a plant once and said it was okay, it wasn't killable. I killed it.

It's hot here, but not as hot as it is for you guys. I say just install a water drip system to keep that ground moist for starters. Other than that get some shade blankets/walls for the heat. Grow something on the outside of your smaller plants to shield them from the wind and even partly sun
