We actually got a little bit of rain yesterday. I’m not sure how much rain in total we had, but it was the first really rain we had in more than three weeks here in Toronto.
I’ve been giving my garden extra deep waterings this week since it’s been so very hot. This past Thursday it got up to 38 Celsius and due to humidity it felt like 49 Celsius which was 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Crazy hot!
I guess I shouldn’t be wondering why some of my Gladiola stalks are crumpling in the middle and falling down. I think it’s from the sheer heat and the drought even though we’ve been trying to make sure our garden is getting enough water. I do think we’re watering enough as our grass still has some green to it compared to most of our neighbors. Not that we’re watering our lawn all that much – just a little sprinkle when we water the garden, but we’ve been doing it all along during the drought, so I guess that’s why we have some green still and most of our neighbors don’t.
Are you getting any rain in your area? Are you also getting extremely high temperatures? How are you surviving the heat and drought?
