I spend a couple of hours in my garden this morning.  I decided to go out while it was still cool.  There was a bit of a breeze, but it was not as cool as I thought it would be.  I harvested my pumpkins, pulled some weeds, trimmed some plants and tied up a few that were falling over. 

I still have some beans to pick. The hot weather seemed to have stopped the flowers from forming, but over the past week it was a bit cooler and now I have beans again!

I also have to tackle my tomatoes, especially the little grape ones.  They have grown very large and are falling over.  I have some red ones and some really tasty yellow ones. 

But they will have to wait until later.  It is getting too hot out there.

We do what we can in the cool of the morning (or evening). The heat has been unbelievable this summer.

Our garden struggled this year with the seems these things need cool evenings and we didn't really get many of those. Your pumpkins look great!

Hia Hetty,
I've just harvested some tomatoes and falling apples. I've not grown any pumpkins but I think we may be at roughly the same point in the season. I'm in NW England. Thanks for popping in my blog.

Nice pumpkins, all three of them.
And all the watering involved with growing veggies this summer. Enjoy!
By the end of August we can start thinking again of winter.
