Summer Heat Gardening Tips

 Reminders to self:

1. The annuals and soft perennials need daily watering during the summer heat.

2. The Gardener needs watering every half-hour or so.

3. Gardening in the summer is an early-morning activity - (except for motorized lawn mowing, which, in the early morning, will make you very unpopular with your neighbors).

4. Even retreating to areas of shade as the sun rises higher in the sky, by 10:30 AM or so, it might be best to go indoors.
