In spite of this horendous heat and drought conditions,I've been able to raise a few crops. In the top picture is one of my 'Moon and Stars' watermelons. In the same picture, in the upper left hand corner you can see a baby butternut squash getting a start at life.
In the middle are a few tomatoes hiding in the leaves. In the bottom picture some of our sweet potatoes which are growing in one of my raised beds near the green house.
If I hadn't watered things we would be without anything, I'm sure. They are calling for cooler weather this week, in the mid to upper 90's :^) X.
