Meanwhile, I will just occasionally water those plants that don't seem to need any TLC at all like the chillies that are growing profusely and I am sure we could supply a restaurant with all the varieties that grow here. I don't eat them at all but the CEO likes them.
The CEO is trying to get rid of the yellow tamarillos but they just keep persisting and come up in the compost heap. LOL!
This plant is growing like a weed and I have no idea what it is but it does look pretty and doesn't seem to like a lot of water.
The hydrangeas used to look like this ....
...but this year look like this! Plus there have hardly been any flowers at all. This is the first time that I can ever remember the bush not producing masses of flowers.
So until it cools down I will just keep alive the plants we want to keep that need TLC and aren't fond of the heat and just let the veggies go. The herbs always seem to be hardy so they will be watered.
I have to keep the CEO's bromeliads alive or I won't be very popular as I am 'the waterer' :-)
I have been intending to make Fire Cider for years now and have never had horseradish growing so I bought some last year from Green Harvest and now have three plants that I am trying to keep alive.
When I bought the horseradish I also bought some West Indian lemongrass as the variety we had growing was the East Indian lemongrass. I wanted the variety that is used in Thai cooking. So there are now three plants growing really well and need to be planted out in the garden.....somewhere.
So there are some plants growing well in the heat and some are not doing well at all and like us are looking a tad limp and struggling a bit. However, we are in the last month of summer so autumn is just around the corner and it has been my favourite season for a couple of years now whereas spring used to be but a few spring heatwaves changed all that very quickly.
Lori commented on my last blog post about the dishcloths that she would like to find some crochet patterns similar to the knitted ones I mentioned. If she is reading I have ask on the Down to Earth forums if anyone had any patterns but it seems to be a bit difficult to have the same effect with crochet. However, I will keep looking as I came up with one on Pinterest and will include it in my next post.
Now I need to find a fan to sit under as it was 37C today. Our bedroom was still 30C at 5pm so I need to try and get it cooled down somehow unless I want to sleep in a sauna all night :-)
