It's a cruel, cruel summer

That little praying mantis drowned in a glass I left on the patio overnight :(

It's been a cruel, cruel summer as far as the plants go. I have seen temperatures on my patio as high as 113'F. I can't imagine transplanting anything from the hydro outside into that.

I think I need larger containers, in general. My poblano peppers aren't really doing anything.

My AeroGardens are growing various seedlings, and I have had an awful lot of duds among the seed pods. One of my AGs has just two plants, as they are both statuesque, budding beauties: a cherry tomato and a monstrously huge zucchini with leaves the size of small pancakes. Zucchini seems to be well suited to hydroponics. I wonder if my AG Classic will be large enough to house the full plant.

Zucchini would be awesome in the aerogarden. The only thing I would worry about is vertical height. They do sell those extenda-arm thingies now.

Good to see ya!
