We seem to be going through yet another dry period here in Toronto. It’s been a very dry summer. I think it’s been one of the driest I’ve ever seen here in Toronto in the time that I’ve lived here.
We did manage to get some rain on and off for the first two weeks or so of August. Much needed I must say! However, now that we aren’t getting any rain my garden is being to shrivel up again! My tomato plants are wilting as are the cucumbers. I water them but they are not recovering. I suppose it doesn’t help that it’s hot during the day but it’s cooling off quite a bit now at night.
Maybe the plants know that Fall is coming and that’s why they are getting wilty and not recovering like I think they should be. I mean – we still have a month of summer and I’ve only really just started to get a good crop of tomatoes coming in. My plants can’t start failing now!
How is your garden doing in this heat and or drought?
