Drag.

The heat does a number on my garden.

Tomorrow I'm going to try and move as much as I can to shaded areas.

Yeah, have experienced our share here a week ago at 105F, so ahead of time I have moved some close to the house, still getting some light but not too much direct sunlight. It does help. I also water/spray the root zone very early in the day before the sun hits them. I usually do a very thorough watering once a week, it is just too bone dry, right now our humidity is so low at 12%.

And summer is just about to come.. Rolling my eyes. Rolling my eyes.

We have had rain, every day for two weeks. It is in the 80s and humidity is 70%. It feels like triple digits. My plants are drowning. I have turned everything on its side they do not need anymore water.
