Fruit and Veggies That Can Survive the Summer Heat

Here we are half way through August of 2019. I can’t believe it has been over 3 years since I have posted. Over the past few years as I have thought about blogging, the idea of getting everyone caught up on how the gardens, chickens, ducks and the newest addition of quail are doing, has seemed like too daunting a task. So I decided that we’ll just get caught up as we go.

Even though the temps have been in the 90’s with heat indexes of 105 to 110 degrees, there are still veggies and fruit producing. Seems like the only thing wilting is me, the gardener.

Some of the veggies and fruits are just holding their own while others seem to be flourishing in my garden here in zone 8b.
