Re: my new project has hit a snag!

My question is......? How hot is it there? All of you keep talking about
these weeding projects and solarization projects and volunteer projects. How
in the world do you get this done? It is now 9:20 pm here, and I exaggerate
not, on my way home (about 15 minutes ago) the temperature was 95 degrees.
It is like that 24/7 this week. And the humidity is about the same
percentage as the temp is hot. It's almost impossible to do anything but
water enough to keep things alive.
