If you are new to south Louisiana, welcome to our warm summer season of high humidity, high temperatures and high electrical bills. If you are a long time resident of the area, welcome to our summer season with cool shaded areas, cold sweet tea and cold watermelon. Like most things in life, especially our summer weather, it’s just a matter of perspective. As you attempt to garden in this July heat keep all your gardening needs and wants in check.
This is only July
It’s only gonna’ get hotter
Summer’s just starting
So drink plenty of “wotter.”
My rhyming attempt shows I’ve already been in the sun too long! Look at the sunny side of Gardening.
