Heat warning

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!
