It's going to be a very hot summer like the past few years. Hopefully the drought is not as bad as last year's. But I can already see cracks on the ground in the yard. We are worried about the foundation of the house because it will have a big gap again. We have to soak the foundation few times so the ground will maintain it's moisture.
Two nights ago we had a good rain because of the storm. The garden looked really good and the tomatoes are bearing fruits now. The string beans reached the first bar of the trellis. Few herbs that we planted (from Hometownseeds.com) have already sprouted. All in all, the plants look very happy. My husband said it will be by July before we can harvest some tomatoes, eggplant, okra, string beans, peppers, and cucumbers. Feeding the plants with plant food once every two or three weeks helps them grow big and healthy.
