Wow what a week this has been. We have been dealing with temperatures near 100 degrees ever since returning from vacation! Water, water, water seems to be all I can do ts week and even then the plants were looking a bit sad. This morning I woke up to a beautiful overcast sky to find that we got nearly and inch of rain over night! The bad thing is it still looks super dry out there :( but no fear mother nature is blessing us with a cool day and the hope of more rain to come. I am finally getting to start to harvest some vegetables which is really exciting! I love seeing all my hard work finally paying off. While it is not a lot I have picked 5 tomatoes(sweet 100s) and another 10 beans this week. We have about 10 corn growing strong on the stalk, many more beans and tomatoes growing! The next couple weeks promise to be very productive YAY! Here are some pictures from the week.
