Re: question for those used to gardening in heat!

I was envying folks in the desert yesterday. Even with dousing with cold
water, and being practically immersed in it for much of the day (fertilizing
a few hundred waterlilies), it was still so humid that there was hardly any
evaporative cooling.  No breeze, either.
And when I got home, the mosquitoes nearly carried me off while I was
watering ( still by hand, carrying every gallon. The well guy is supposed to
come today. (please))
