    I have spent quite a bit of time in places hotter than the south without having A/C. You can get used to being without it the same way you got used to having it.

    I agree. We never had a air conditioner when we lived in Florida when I was younger. Now as I get older I have gotten accustom to it. Although we just a have window unit now I expect to put central air in soon mostly to help control the humidity

    Hard frost and snow coming soon here. I'll try covering again, but after this attempt it'll be the end of gardening for me. Actually, I'm surprised the growing season was as long as it was here. It's supposed to get into the teens.

    Still major heat and major drought at Slippy Lodge. 90's but we're hoping for a reprieve on Monday.

    In 8 years, I cannot remember any deer getting within 100 yards of the house and garden.

    Earlier this summer I noticed a few deer getting close and in the past few weeks more have come within a few yards of my garage. This morning, I noticed deer droppings inside my fence and within 2 feet of one of my raised vegetable beds. The only things that are still living and producing in the garden are Basil, Habaneros and Jalapeno Peppers.

    The Basil is untouched...is it possible that the deer like Hot Peppers? HMMMM?

    When I was younger also. I lived in NM without any air too. Now? Heat indexes above 105. It's dangerous. People are dying.

    Looks like we might get our first frost here Saturday night. The forecast is saying in rural areas but there is a possibility of some light winds so we might make it. I will be covering our Tabasco plants as they have a lot of peppers that need to ripen. We picked over 4 lbs last night and there in the smoker now. So we will see how this goes but we still have lots of peppers on the plants and plenty of grape tomatoes.

    I grew Tabasco peppers a couple years ago they are zippy little peppers!

    Yes they are especially for their size. I made the refrigerator hot sauce with them a couple of years ago. The plants are the tallest of all of my pepper plants

    Cleaned out the garden over the weekend. Now trying to take care of what we picked. I have already smoked about 3/4 of red jalapenos that we picked. I made 6 pints of hot banana Cowboy Candy. I have stuffed over 200 jalapeno halves for poppers to freeze. Still have about 75 more to do. I plan to string up some poblano peppers to dry. I still have so Fresno peppers to do something with hopefully. After Saturday our garden canning should be done for the year after we finish canning the pears. I still plan to can some dried baby green lima beans and some pintos for quick meals.
