The heat index is around 105 degrees. This purple martin mother is venting--they like the heat and I have been told not to worry, but she does have babies inside the apartment. I looked inside and they are fine.
We stocked our large pond with catfish, perch and other fish a few years ago and have not properly thinned the mass of fish until this year. Here is a nice catch.
My largest butterfly garden is still thriving in the intense heat. I water the plants from my rain barrels each morning.
Below: Cherry tomatoes and a few squashes I picked this morning, plus the daily compost stuff like corn husks and onion pieces.
