Yes, it's hot in So Cal today. We've been having a bit of a Santa Ana condition so it's been pretty warm.
I felt sorry for my drought tolerant plants in the back yard so I gave them a good soak yesterday. It's a little early in the season to be this hot. Nobody's drooping but the acacia and a few others just got done flowering so they needed a nice douse of water. Not a light sprinkling mind you. We want the water to go down to the roots where it can be used and saved by the plants. Everything has been in the ground for two years so they get along on rainfall alone pretty much. Although in the heat of the summer, or during un-seasonal heat waves I like to water them once a month.
I am SO glad I turned the compost pile before the heat wave started!
Other than that, where have I been all week? Working. I just uploaded FIVE new gardening art designs to my store. I really gotta grow my seed budget, if you know what I mean. I did two on roses, a red, white and blue patriotic design, one for heirloom gardeners and another based on the old Victory Gardener campaign from WWII.
