That is what I used to say when I was young and was calling it quits. I'm very close to there now with 80% or more of my garden. The last two days of 98-99 degrees with 20-40 mph steady winds with gusts higher basically cooked alot of my new growth. Most of the tomato plants that looked so good Sunday night have all of the new growth and blooms fried. The same with the leaves on the cornfield pumpkin even. Some plants lying close to the ground like the sweet potatoes still look ok. Some of the bush beans. The pole beans were really starting to produce but it looks like they suffered greatly also. I'm to the point where I'm about tired of fighting. This has been the most demanding year I've ever had gardening with fewer returns. I will yank several more of the tomato plants this evening. Glad I hadn't moved the container plants out in the open more yet.
The good news is they are saying a 90% chance of moisture with an inch or more of rain very likely. And maybe the cooldown has finally arrived. I was at an institute yesterday and several were asking me about how my garden and especially my tomatoes had done this year. Most called it quits a month ago. Guess I'm too hard headed. I'm preparing the garlic bed. I'm going to see what our moisture situation is through the winter. I may plant a lot less next year if things don't improve. Jay
