Hand watering now to keep them going.
    Finally had some Cherokees ripen a few days ago tasty they are!

    Our first round of crops were a huge success but now that the summer heat and drought has hit "The Rolling Plains Of Dixie" at Slippy Lodge, everything but the Peppers are dying off. We planted a second round of tomatoes (plants, not seeds) and went out of town for last weekend and the heat lack of rain killed half of the new tomato plants.

    Herbs are also struggling and second planting of carrots from seeds are puny at best. Temps have been in the mid 90's and we haven't had significant rain in at least 2 weeks.

    Good luck all to the north of us,

    Were canning green beans today. Picke d33 lbs this week so not a bad week. We do french style so it takes a little longer to slice them and then canning. Put another 5 lbs of supersweet 100 tomaotes in th edehydrator yesterday. Thinking of dehydrating some cucumbers to us in winter salads. But thats for another day. Picked concord grapes yesterday. so its grape jam making for tomorrow. Busiest canning weekend so far
