Summertime in the South

Ruth showing off one of our prize
The summers in Camiri are HOT!!! We endured enjoyed weather from the high 80's to the low 100's, for weeks on end without relief at night. We finally broke down in January (summer is from September through April!) and bought three more AC units for our bedrooms. It was a HUGE blessing to have them! I have to tell you that Heat and I do not agree with one another. I may have mentioned it before, but I turn into a royal grump in the heat! Fun!!!

Our cucumbers eventually gave up the ghost on bearing, because it was just too hot for them. The only thing that loved that heat was the cantaloupes we had planted. We harvested quite a few of them and they were delicious!!!!
