The garden is starting to show the stress of this intense heat we're having right now, and despite our best efforts to keep the back garden watered, the plants are suffering. We've decided to pick and choose which ones we're going to continue to baby along. Some are reaching the end of their natural cycle anyway, so I'm concentrating on picking and processing those first.
These are the entire crop of Mississippi Silver Cow Peas. They've been drying on the plants, so John's not going to water them anymore and I'm picking them. Some are completely dry and the others will dry out fast.
