It's Hot Today!

So hot I almost don't want to work in the garden. I started with the tomato plants, adding compost and cultivating the soil. Didn't get too far along when Yuh-Shioh arrived. It was too hot to work on the tomatoes any more, time to move to the shade. We worked on the strawberry patch, removing pine needles and lots of loose leaves that had fallen after the bushes were trimmed. Cultivated the soil and watered well.

I need to spray castor oil for gophers in Garden #1. There are 2 holes that I am sure are gopher holes near the tomato plants. Also have to spray for powdery mildew. Whew! Lots to do!
