If you thought i was kidding yesterday about the temp here…. as of 9AM (yes that is nine in the morning) the temp was 87.5F and the Heat Index was 99.0F. I lasted about 20 minutes and picked some beans, cuc’s, and ‘The Tomato’, which i foresee as a sandwich later today. Over night we got a big .03” of rain, but some is better than nothing, even though it didn’t show on our moisture sensors.
Yesterday i mentioned the new Pecan tree that was planted, and here it is. Unfortunately it will be about 15 years before we (or whoever is living here) see any pecans. In the mean time it should provide a little shade in the grove on those sunny summer afternoons before the sun goes behind the pines.
