Re: question /tea in the heat!


I make Louisanne sun tea. Always add a double handful of fresh mint to the mix before setting it out to brew. I've got a big gulp [18 oz] insulated glass to which I add to lemon juice ice cubes and two water ice cubes before the tea. It's a nice drink, especially when it's hot.

Donna, for you sun tea try decaf tea bags. You might be surprised how fast
you get used to it vs caffeinated. Not opposed to caffeine at all, and am
in fact, a coffee freak in the morning. But when I'm seriously dehydrated,
I prefer either water or if I can't stomach that at the moment I drink
decaf iced tea with Splenda. Never know the difference between that and
"Sweet tea." (No lemon here either) I keep it in the fridge all the time.
Drinking some right now as a matter of fact....

No wonder I am having a heck of time with this
heat--unbearable again today, but some relief by
Friday so they say...

Only one problem w/ that dear, caffeine is a
diuretic which dehydrates
you too.  Vicious cycle.

oh no-- I have to have my caffine! I would be at a
stand still without it!

Lipton, sweetened, no lemon in the glass bottles
is my
favorite choice... although sun tea is always in
the
fridge during the summer season too...

Of course, that is for working... dinner requires
a
pepsi.

I do that all the time.  Sometimes accidently,
sometimes not.  But it
really does help you keep cool.  And keep
hydrated
folks.  The heat
will fry the water right out of you.  Water or
decaf/herbal iced tea
are good choices.

Also- watering oneself while in the garden
is a
must for those of us in
the heat.  My husband has some very
unwelcome
photos of me after
drenching myself witht he hose outside.  He
thought it was rather funny
(but not photo-worthy in my opinion!)

Also, try to either water in the early
morning
if your watering system
gets
the leaves wet.  Soaker hoses can be used
at
anytime.  One article I read
mentioned creating larger dips with slight
berms around them...plant in
the
dips.  The morning dew and whatever
moisture is
available tends to
collect
in the dips.  Mulch, mulch, mulch.

Donna, never fertilize a plant under
stress
and  I never fertilize a

tree.


Haven't you rcd the rains recently?  I
think
plants are tough if they
are

in


their hardiness zone, planted correctly
and
received adequate moisture.
