It's good to hear that I wasn't the only one suffering from the Summer heat and drought. I grew weary of dragging the garden hose around every morning and evening, wishing for a break of cool air and rain. For the past few years I have been thinking maybe next year it will be different but nooooot!

It's funny Adina that you're almost on the other side of the Earth and are experiencing the same things that I am here. Looking at your pictures I would swear I was looking at my problems. I thought that the bad weather weather was only happening in the US but I guess this gobal warming trend is everywhere. Let's keep our fingers crossed for a better next year.

Wow, I would've thought by looking at your pics that you were living here in South Carolina. We had a series of periods of good rain followed by 2-3 weeks of no rain followed by a lot rain, followed by 2-3 weeks of no rain etc, etc. from May until August.


The heat was earlier and more intense that normal and many veggies, plants. etc. did horribly. Tomato and other veggie production was simply awful in these parts. By mid-summer I got truly worn out by daily watering to ensure that my newer plants survived. I prefer natives b/c they tend to be more drought and pest tolerant. Fortunately August and September brought cooler and wetter weather. Here's to a much better growing season for all of us in 2013!
