And, man, is it ever. Overnight low 78°, F (approx 26°, C); afternoon high
93°, F (approx. 34°, C). August should really be nice ;-). I'm shading tomatoes,
eggplant, bell peppers, yellow squash, cucumbers. Considering shading the
immature field peas and snap beans. Hand pollinating tomatoes, squash,
cucumbers, eggplant and watching the peppers and beans closely for signs of
incomplete pollination. This time of year, European honeybees and all but the
hardiest of native pollinators go on hiatus. Honeybees start carrying water
instead of flower juice at temps above 90°, F, (approx. 32°, C) and often
overnight under leaves instead of trying to journey back to their hives.
