Gardening in the Heat

Yesterday the actual temperature reached 90 degrees and the humidity was typical for a Michigan summer day. In other words, it felt like I’d been hit in the face with a hot, wet cloth when I stepped outside. A sensible person would have gone immediately back into the air conditioned house. But I’m me so I decided to do a little gardening in the heat.

  1. I’d become dehydrated for the opposite reason, last May; humidity was about 2% with temps in the 100s. It’s a dry heat, and it sucks all the moisture out of you. It’s two months, and I’m still recovering. I do understand the irresistible need to accomplish what needs to be done. I work in the yard a few days a week, attempting to curb the cat-claw. HaHa. I’m only able to work 10-15 minutes. Having said that, I laughed through your post. Take care of you.

    1. Heat’s debilitating dry or humid. I always carry a bottle of water but then I forget to stop and drink it! My biggest problem today was mulch-butt. I sat on wood mulch and it’ll be weeks before my tushie looks normal!

  2. It’s been in the high 90’s in NM right now, which is pretty normal but our summer thunderstorms are a few weeks late. We had to put shade cloth up in the garden to keep the tomatoes happy.

    1. The heat wouldn’t bother me as much if it weren’t for the darned humidity. It’s like standing in an uncomfortably hot shower outside. You’re really good to your tomatoes! This year my poor vegetable garden is mostly some very unhappy vegetables surrounded by a lot of delighted weeds.
