Hot and getting hotter. Started out the day at 42 degrees and then the temperature rose to 92. That's 50 degrees of change! Tomorrow is supposed to be 100 and maybe even hotter the next day like 105. Get this, though, on Thursday, only 85! That would be a 20 degree change in one day. No wonder I have some weird shaped cucumbers. Everything else looks great despite the swings. Lots of tomatoes and cantaloupes ripening between morning and afternoon. Strawberries are tasty when not over-watered which is challenging because they can look kinda sad in the middle of the day. Broccoli secondary shoots are almost as big as the first head.
