June and July have been even hotter than usual here in northeast Oklahoma, already reaching 100+ F temperatures, and this week we are forecasted for a 110 degree day, so a daily watering is definitely order for all of the plants.
After today’s watering I got a few garden diary pics: a ripening tomato, a flowering lotus, and watermelons in the shade of the leaves. The squirrels have nabbed a lot of the plants from my “vegetable garden,” leaving only watermelon and one little pepper plant. And I’m pretty sure they ate my first baby watermelon! Hopefully the new watermelons can grow big enough to elude the neighborhood wildlife.
