The predicted high today is 103 with high humidity. This heat wave reduces the amount of time I spend working in the garden except for harvesting and watering. We have had a few meals now of green beans, and today I picked our first wax beans. We've had summer squash, zucchini, and carrots, and of course, Swiss chard (my favorite). The raspberries I planted last year are sending up lots of new stems, and many of them have small fruit forming. We have had a handful of berries each day from the older stems. I'm looking forward to more bountiful crops as the years progress. Yum!
