That was the word at the top of the screen when I checked the website of my local news channel this morning. Nothing like the word “oppressive!” to make you want to stay inside. Meteorologist Chris Sowers goes on to say, “Today will be the 28th time this year that Philadelphia has hit 90 degrees or higher, including 21 during the month of July!” Yeh, dude, no need to tell me, I know all about it. And so does my garden.
Despite the “oppressive” heat, I have still been enjoying the bounty from my vegetable garden. Squash, tomatoes, and what I think is the last of the green beans.
Yellow squash, Early Girl tomatoes, and Kentucky Blue green beans.
