For the fourth year in a row, New Jersey has had the hottest July on record. Setting aside what this says about global climate change (seriously, I grow weary of the climate change denial crowd), that's a challenge for gardeners like me. Luckily, this version of hell-hot July was also accompanied with pretty steady rainfall. Factor in the sprinkler and things are coming along quite nicely in my garden.
And zinnia bouquets are on their way. Heat not withstanding, it's been a glorious green summer to celebrate.
