Gary Petterson (L) & team say, "Help your plants beat the heat with aluminized shade cloth!"Remember: plants need slow, deep watering & consistent use of First Step (3 x per year) to help ease heat stress. Stick a long-shanked screwdriver in the soil to see how wet the soil is. If it's soft & muddy, your watering too much. If it 's dry & the screwdriver doesn't go in very far, then your underwatering & have caliche. 'Stress Relief' is a product that helps reduce moisture loss due to high temps & scorching winds.
Fresh veggies are still available:
Onions, okra, Armenian cucumbers & Swiss chard.
