I hope your gardens are thriving even in the record heat. Should they be struggling, don’t be afraid to trim them back and give your plants a break from the challenge. They will re-foliate and thank you for it with glorious new growth in a couple weeks. This will also aid in their ability to capitalize on the water they are receiving. The high dry desert is hot too and I am grateful that my gardens are doing well and responding happily to the pruning.
I have to admit that I have done more gardening than writing in the last few months. Nevertheless you will find numerous new posts in the Companion Planting blog and many new plant entries in The Compendium for Spirit Handling. We are now up to Chapter 13 in Letters to the Unborn. I have a great deal written for Letters and will get it posted very soon.
I hope this finds you well and happy, staying cool, and sneaking out to the garden at dawn to enjoy it’s early morning beauty.
