My Poor Garden – It’s Too Hot!

All my squash plants died last week. The watermelon plants are still struggling. Actually that’s not completely true.  One is thriving very nicely, I don’t know what its problem is. It is sending out runners all over the place. No flowers or baby watermelons, just prolific green vines.

However, my tomato plants are struggling. I had hoped to muster up some energy over the weekend to give them a trim and cover them with shadecloth to help them withstand the heat.  I am watering every single day now.  The eggplants are doing great.  Not much fruit being produced, but they don’t look stressed in the least.

There are things I can plant – pumpkin for one, but again I’m barely able to muster up the energy to walk out there and water in the early morning (when it’s already in the 90s), let alone stick a seed in the ground and keep it moist.

I wish, wish, wish I had my watering system set up. But I guess that is just going to have to wait until I have more energy. I think the heat is a lot of what is affecting me.  People with adrenal fatigue are often sensitive to the heat. It just seems like when I get overheated, I end up being wiped out for days after and can’t seem to get back to where I was before. I can’t really say back to my old self, because I used to at least have days where I’d have bursts of energy and could get things done. Now I feel like that feeling when you get out of the swimming pool after having been in the water for hours and your body feels really, really heavy.

Link me to some of your blog posts about your gardens back east, I know you guys are in full swing right about now.
