Yellow squash plants in our garden were first eaten to the ground by rabbits; now, this oppressive heat and dearth of rain is draining them. Not a good year for squash, but the tomatoes are doing well. Basil is already going to seed, and literally, overnight, flower heads appear. I'm constantly pinching! Afraid my beloved basil won't make it much longer, and it's only July. Parsley is coming back after being ravaged by the resident woodchuck. A very hot summer here. Good in some ways, and bad in others. But always grateful to Mother Nature for the chance to homestead. Thank you, Mother E!
