Kansas Heat Wave

Left. It's still brutally hot in Baldwin City, KS. This morning I pulled out the corn that hasn't produced ears--it's depressing to lose anything from the garden!

Middle and bottom pictures: cucumber vines and tomato plants are still producing. I made two gallons of salsa yesterday. Today I saw dozens, if not hundreds, of yellow tomato blossoms so hopefully more fruit is on the way. My water barrels are rapidly becoming depleted. I hope it rains soon!
Cucumber vines grow up an old ladder, a bit of chain link fence and the frame of a wire compost bin.

One of the 70 or so tomato plants. This one is in a raised bed.
