Well, I pulled out the beans and the cucumbers. It’s just too hot. The plants won’t set fruit in the heat, and the leaves are turning yellow and brown. Not sure what kind of disease that is, but it’s spreading through the beans, and it’s just not worth trying to keep them alive. Even the zucchini and squash plants are only giving me fruit one or two at a time.
The Roma tomatoes are ripening. I’ve canned 15 pints so far. I still have some round, slicing tomatoes that are green. I have cherry tomatoes that burst in your mouth. They taste like candy.
THIS WEEK’S PURCHASE:
Last week’s suggestion was rice. I found rice this morning at Food 4 Less. Five pounds for $2.99.
This week’s purchase is “water”
Some suggestions are
55-gallon drum, fill with water, and add 4 1/2 tsp unscented bleach.
25-32 packs of 1/2 liter bottles of water. You can find these for $3-$4 each. The nice thing about this is you can throw it in the car or keep some in the fridge for a cold drink. It’s easy to rotate.
5-gallon bottles of water. You can get these at most grocery stores. Keep them sealed, and they’ll last for months.
In addition to having water (1 gallon a day per person–and this is NOT very much), you should have a Silcock key
