Conditions have been similar here. We have been running at least 7
degrees above normal, whatever that is. Our normal temperatures for June
are in the high 70s and low 80s but, this year, we have been running
weeks of 90 degree temperatures and are 6" short of normal
precipitation. It's like the entire weather calendar jumped two months
early. Of course, the weeds seem to stress the least so I am watering to
keep desired plants alive. Even along the Interstates, the grass has
already turned gold. The farmers are getting lots of hay in.

We have the warmth but not enough moisture; seems to be just north of us. However, summer flowers have been doing ok. 

Anybody have a good suggestion for eliminating bind weed?

How is everyone's gardening doing thus far this season. First of summer is 
here now. We had one warm rain after another with temps 7 degrees above 
average in June. In short, it was hot and it was humid... like a trip to 
Mobile without getting in the car. 
My gardens have been the most lush they have ever been. No late frosts this 
time around. Plenty of moisture and warmth. So many plants bloomed ahead of 
schedule and all together there is not a lot out there right now. But,I am 
more of a foliage person than blooms, so all is well with me.
