Heat wave began in earnest on Monday, 5 July. We watered things pretty deeply before we left for the city on Monday evening, but we aren't back at the house until Friday evening, for crying out loud. Those plants will have to make do without us for another two days. It's been hot in the country, but not as hot as here in the city, thankfully, so all shall be well, I hope.
And maybe we've had a thunderstorm or two . . .
