A little bit of this heat goes a long way. Here it is 8:30 and I’m pooped! Anyone nearby have a couch? I was out in my garden at work picking veggies in the sun. It was enough to set me back on my butt.
I’ve admitted this before, but I’ll say it again. I’m not a very knowledgeable gardener. There are loads of people who know more than I do.
I’m willing to do the research when necessary. That’s why I was prepared to talk about soil moisture today.
The good news is once planted gardens nearly grow themselves! Add water. Pull weeds. Voila! Veggies! I pulled a large basket’s worth this evening from my little plot and there’s plenty of growing season left.
I spent most of the on-the-air segment down on my hands and knees digging in the dirt (and horse manure). I sweated like a pig!
I am privileged to have access to the shower down near the presses where the Hartford Courant is printed. We’ve got towels. The water pressure is high. Trust me, I take advantage.
I’m going to try and stay awake until the news ends at 11:35 and then the drive home… but I’m making no promises.

See I told ya you should have come to Florida!! Come get cool with us 🙂
I finally got to see your gardening segment with no distractions or interruptions. Your produce is much earlier than mine. One suggestion in the heat; put the hose on mist and hold it over your head like an umbrella! LOL..Aahh, it feels nice!
Is that a Longaberger basket you’re holding? You have such good taste!
Watched the garden segment tonight. Just two quick notes. First, the cukes will be a lot better if you pick them sooner – those were awful big. Second, I think you identified the white veggie as a squash? From here it looked like a white eggplant. Other than that, the garden is looking great.
Why oh Why were you wearing a dark shirt and pants? I know that you know you should be wearing light colors. How do I know this? I saw you talking to a dr. about it (while wearing a dark jacket).
