Like I said in my previous post, it's been super dry and hot here. Yesterday we got lucky and things cooled off early. Yay, for being able to open the windows before midnight! We also got rain off and on all night. It's now starting to rain again, which is brilliant. First because, you know, cooler weather. Second, because I don't have to water. My container garden needs watering every day. The tomatoes get a gallon of water each, most days. The jalapeno, not so much, but it still needs watering.
Of course, as I watch it hail and absolutely pour down on my plants, I am a wee bit worried for them. I would normally pull them inside but I opened the door and got a face full of water, so hey, you're outdoor plants, deal with the rain.... And 2 of the tomato plants are over 5 feet tall, so not easy to move. Strangely, the two tall plants are not the same type of tomato. The one to the left is an Early Girl, which has multiple fruit on the vine, the other two are Big Beef plants. The jalapeno is finally about to flower!
And I do like the rain, now that the hail has stopped. Plus, it's Colorado, so I give it a few more minutes and the storm will move on. And then the humidity will come back, haha. We're not supposed to be humid, we're in a high desert climate. But today the Midwest was way less humid than we were. What's up with that??
And on that note, I'm going to go open all the windows again, watch some ghosty shows on YouTube and knit on my newest sock, Black Roses for Morticia.
