The heat is here to stay and is both good and bad. Many flowers really love the heat and as long as their roots have enough water, the heat and sun really make them pop! Some flowers don't love the heat as much and it signals to them that its time to make seeds before the cold comes again. Tomatoes love it! Chickens don't really do. They can't cool off with a dip in some fresh water like the ducks so I make sure they have shade, cool water, and some cool treats like watermelon and crispy lettuce.
Each year, I promise myself that I won't let them turn into chaos, and each year they look like this. lol. There's always next year! Especially as this will be the last week of the sweet peas in bouquets. The heat is causing them to burst into bloom on ever shorter stems and I wanna give em enough time to turn those gorgeous, sweet smelling flowers into chubby, little round seeds!
