I went to The Farm yesterday and damn near died

It was somewhere in the mid to upper 90s, and the heat index was 119, which I assume is really bad, because I fucking near fell out. It was hot, people.

Naturally, peppers love the heat. I don't even know what kind these are, but they are tiny and they are very hot. I assume that when then turn red, they'll be even hotter:


These guys are hot, too, and many are ready to harvest:


Still turning red with these bad boys, who are a little sweeter:


Third-generation beans are doing well:


The old peas bed needs to be weeded and hoed:


The carrots are cranking along:


Garlic bed No. 2 is doing OK:


This bed needs to be weeded an hoed:


So does this one:


This is garlic bed No. 2, which looks like shit and is hiding a secret:


The first crop of brussels sprouts is not looking good:


The first generation of beans is pretty much done. Time to pull, weed and hoe:


The second generation beans are doing fine, as are the green onions:


So, after weeding and hoeing some of the beds, looking better:


Like I said:


Harvested some beans, habaneros, garlic and -- the big surprise from Garlic Bed No. 1 -- some onions. Home Depot sold me some garlic seeds that were onions. Fuckers:


Also brought in some tomatoes:


And squash and zucchini:


The squash and zucchini bed is looking burned out, though, so this might be the last of the harvest from there:


I did a lot of weeding yesterday. It was hotter than the hinges. Mrs. Wolves came along, but she spent her time in the neighbor's pool. Not exactly a team-building exercise. More to come from my visit today.
