Sure, the lawn needs mowing and weeds need whacking, but today is going to be just plain silly. Even at 7 AM, when I collected the paper, it is stifling outside. Right now it is approaching 8 AM and the temperature (82) and humidity (87) are combining to make it feel like 92 degrees.
No worries - today I have my occasional spot with Niki Jabbour on a Nova Scotia gardening show (you can listen live, at 10:30 EST, here http://www.news957.com/ - topics will be tomato progress for the season so far, and answering any questions that come in)......Then, at 2 PM, another Southern Season cooking class (there is a description of the class here - https://www.southernseason.com/class/event.asp?id=19267 ), where Alex Hitt (of Peregrine Farms) and I will be talking tomatoes while Marilyn Markel creates some tomato dishes. Unfortunately, I will have no tomatoes of my own to contribute, thanks to this weird, difficult growing season.To include a bit more about gardening in today's blog, here is another garden update video from July 17 - this one shows how my indeterminate tomatoes are doing.
