I guess we should have known by the oddly warm and early spring we had this year that we were in for one hot summer, but this is crazy.
It is insanely warm. Not only are people having a hard time in the heat, but so are the plants.
Take my poor little herbs I potted in May. All was well with them at first. Then at the end of June I went away for a few days to help with kitchen reno (by help I mean watch) and then off to my Dad’s wedding. And while I was away that blaring sun got to my herbs.
I came home to pots of dying and, in some cases, downright fried little herbs. I cut back what I could and took good care of them..
Some of them are almost recovered. Others, though, I am pretty sure are dead.
