Ontario Heat Wave!!
Wow, I couldn't believe it - 31 degrees today!! I had forgotten about the forecast and didn't get out until afternoon. By that time some of my containers which were in the sun were baked!! Hope they recover. Luckily, the containers which had sprouts were in the shade. I am overwhelmed by the wild violets that have suddenly overtaken my backyard garden. They had taken over a little strip on the west side of the house and over 2 years of digging and collecting and destroying all the seeds I could collect I got rid of them. Now they have moved into the backyard. I was out today picking all the flowers off. At least that's one way of heading them off. But I'll be going at them with a knife to get all the roots off. I certainly don't want them getting into the grass. I also notice wild strawberries and another broad leafed weed making an appearance. So bothersome!!
