So, as an experiment, I’ve planted several Hybrid Cherry Tomato plants, as well as some heirloom Cherry Tomatoes in the garden for Fall. I’m worried that I jumped the gun with this extreme heat, but so far so good with both. The hybrids are proving to be a bit more heat hearty, but the heirlooms were not as well established, so it may just be the tender young plants. Time will tell. I’m reserving the remaining heirlooms I started from seed in the greenhouse, to let them get bigger before I set them out. Maybe another 2 or 3 weeks.
The arugula seeds I planted have yet to sprout. I am nearly positive it is too early for arugula, but I’m going to try to keep it shaded if they do come up. I hate buying lettuce, and had much rather grow my own.
Will this horrid heat and drought ever end? Enough already.
