For five days straight, the temperatures have been over 100 degrees. It is H-O-T, hot out there! Despite the heat, we have made progress on the horse fencing. The arena & round pen posts are finally set! Our boys will start on the boards in a day or two when the concrete cures.
Not only has the heat had it's way with our hired hands, the veggie garden is slow to produce. This was today's meager crop. It's not much but I was glad I didn't have to stay out there any longer than I did. And with what was picked yesterday, we had enough okra to fry for dinner. Yum!
The chickens are seeking shelter from the sun. Thier new favorite spot is on the north side of the house in the shade. I have been afraid I would find one dead from sun stroke. Can chickens get that?
This is the only thing that is thriving right now - my hyacinth bean vine.
Isn't it pretty? I'm planting more of it next year.
It may be the only thing that survives if the hot temps continue.
