Sunny Days

If you spent any time outdoors the last couple of weeks experiencing the relentless heat of the beating sun, you know how it feels to be drained. The garden plants deal with it by shutting down as much as they can to conserve their energy. They will slow down or stop flowering, put out little new growth, move precious moisture from their leaves to their main stems which causes them to wilt a bit. Extended heat is tough on even the warmth loving plants like tomatoes and it devastates most of the greens.  The aptly named sunflower appears to take it all in stride, though. They seem to stand there smiling. Their cheerful disposition helped improved mine as I toiled and sweated through the week. Cheer up your house with some. They’ll be available by the stem at this week’s market.
