Heat Index 110--What Survived In the Garden?
The temperature is 102 degrees and the heat index is 110. I ventured out to water some wilted plants and decided to see what might still be viable in the garden. I found a quite a bit: cucumbers seem to thrive no matter how hot it is; the spaghetti squashes looked fine even though their vines are brown and wilted (I pulled them out); the cherry-sized tomatoes are still going strong although some of the larger ones have split. The corn is also pretty healthy.
