Whoa. Living in California means, for some, no right to complain about the weather. But if you are accustom to low 70’s and are dealing with 100 degrees, I do think it’s okay to say it is fairly miserable. Most of us do not have air conditioning in our homes and after a couple of hot days as we have been having, the house is hotter than outside. If you have two stories, all the heat rises and you sleep on the couch down stairs. You are sweating when all you are doing is typing on the computer. ugh.

I know we are experiencing nothing when compared to the floods and tornados. I wish everyone the best.

The good new about the heat is that the garden loves the heat. I can see growth everyday and some of my tomatoes are starting to turn. The apricots ripened in about 2 days and all are picked. Most were given away, but we have a few left for munching. The tree is 30 years old and has begun to give us less fruit. In some ways that’s fine because we have trouble reaching the high fruit and can’t possibly use it all anyway. The oranges can stay on the tree until we want to eat them.

More pix next time.
