Thankfully the heat wave we were experiencing ended on Thursday. By Thursday evening, the temperature dropped by almost 20-degrees and the rest of the seedlings were planted in the garden spot. I have a traditional in-ground garden, six 4x4 square foot gardens, and ten self watering containers (DIY Earthbox planters). There are also a few containers scattered throughout the garden spot.
Some much needed rain is expected tonight and tomorrow. I am trying to conserve moisture by mulching the square foot gardens with pine straw and dried grass clippings. It seems to be helping so far.
