It was a hot week. I know this is June in Arizona and we are used to this sort of thing, but this was a really hot week! Miserable, actually. Monday and Tuesday we saw a high of 108 in Big Bug country. Before you feel too bad, Phoenix was 118 and 119 on those days. Today’s high here was only 104, so we are headed in the right direction.
The forecast calls for highs in the 90s next week, which sounds much better. At this point, I’ll take anything under 100. I am waiting anxiously for Monsoon to begin and bring us some lovely rain. I may go ahead and plant beans and cucumbers next week in anticipation of Monsoon beginning shortly.
