But July has been truly tropical. According to the Weather Channel, it hit 101 degrees in Poughkeepsie last Tuesday and Wednesday. My garden got positively crispy in spots. The grass is straw, which is fine with me.
But tonight felt much better, although it is still 80 at 9:40. I got a lot done this afternoon and evening, weeding, moving plants and containers, a little watering, etc. Things look much better. I can't wait to see it in the morning, and take pictures.
