Fainting fig

It's very HOT - 109! It suddenly jumped up 20 degrees. The fig tree is very unhappy and I had to resuscitate it this afternoon.

Bird are eating the tomatoes! Big black birds. Maybe I need netting. It's too hot to work out there.

There are lots of tiny cucumbers. They are ugly and spiny just like the huge one but it is easy to rub off the spines and then they look normal.

We had zucchini and eggplant and peppers and tomatoes from the garden yesterday - sort of an impromptu ratatouille.

My artichokes died. Too crispy for them. However there were fresh Arizona artichokes at the farmers market last weekend. Also lots of delicious local apricots.
