Hot Weather & Garden Updates

Wow has it ever been hot and humid this week!  Each day the temperatures have been into the 30’s C and with the humidity it’s felt into the 40’s C!  I think the hottest day this week it felt like 41C that’s 104F for my American friends.
It’s been a while since we’ve had rain and the ground is really drying up fast.  We are under a sever thunderstorm warning and a tornado watch for the rest of the day.  I hope we get some rain, but I hope the bad storms don’t hit.

You wouldn’t know storms are coming by the pretty clouds!  They’ve grown thicker and darker in the past hour.

The corn has grown a lot this past week!  It has really enjoyed the high temperatures and the thick mulch is keeping the moisture locked in.  We were worried that we wouldn’t get any corn this year because the long cold spell looked like it had stunted the corn  But it has caught up nicely!

This will be the last time I plant corn in this little garden though.  I had forgotten that it gets shade until mid morning in the spring.  This is why the corn on the far right side is much taller then the corn on the left!  Next year the corn will go down in the main garden that gets full sun.  I think squash will do very well up in this spot.

Our green bush beans are also catching up from the cold spell.  I was worried we wouldn’t get any but this week they’ve started producing.  I don’t know if I’ll get enough to can or freeze as the kids are eating them up pretty fast!
