Had to revive this one from 2017. Can't believe we had that kind of heat and still produced my best garden ever.  I'm working on a new avatar with frogs and redwoods, but it's just in the story-board stage, to be released later this month. Rolling Eyes

What better way to beat the heat than to hang out under the chickens' water bowl. Cool

We're overloaded with rabbits this year! They're eating everything! I can't keep a zinnia to save my soul. Out of 36 starts the only ones left are the 10 I have in pots here on the deck and porch. All the ones planted out in the garden were taken down.. the little rotters. of course now the goldfinches are picking off all the pedals of the potted ones.

Anyway, I like the Avatar topic and will look around and see what I have. I think it has to do with frozen smoothies and lounge chairs under the shade tree.  I love you

What do you mean "beat the heat"? Bask in it! Revel in it! Celebrate it! (Especially now that it's almost over. Rolling Eyes )

The hot weather of August is a good time to pick Jalapeno Peppers, and make some poppers.
