So, here we are in the third week of July and it's finally getting hot (or at least hotter). Not that I'm complaining, just unexpected that's all. These cooler temperatures have given us some great growing weather.
The new crops are galloping along, and are demanding to be spaced and groomed. The weeds are enjoying the conditions as well.
This has been a good reminder of just how quickly plants can grow. Some beds that were pruned a week ago already look significantly different, others are changing day to day.
As long as the nights continue to be relatively cool, then the crops ought to (don't hold me to this) continue to develop.
