With no end in sight of this heat wave we decided to go ahead and get the fall plants in the ground. Our biggest fear is that it's just going to turn off cold and the plants won't have time to get established. After running to Lowe's and getting a soaker hose I swung by Sis's greenhouse and picked up several flats of plants. The collards aren't quite ready so today I planted cabbage, broccoli, kohlrabi along with beet and kale seeds. The soil is like powder. We haven't has rain in weeks. Looks like dragging hoses will be added to the daily chores for a while!
