Baby, it's hot outside

Mid-August and we've had a week of 100-plus degree temperatures and we're very thankful for our sprinkler system. It has kept things looking nice and green, but we're aware that it's also kept our plants dependent on that every-other-day douse of artificial rain. We planted several good-size trees this past winter. We've already lost one (and maybe two) pear trees to fire blight and we're really working hard to make sure the others survive the heat. Fortunately there's a "cool" front coming through...temps only in the low 90s next week! ; )
