Attaching a photo showing the plot that I am clearing today and detail on my monofilament deer fence.

At least it's not too hot today, 31 C, cool for the time of year.

I know we are in a global economy because my favorite gardening hat, purchased in the United States, was made in China by a Swiss company and has a label in Spanish.  (They all deserve their piece of the pie, wouldn't you agree? We are all in this world together.)

Built a raised bed from a pile of scrap brick on my property, and started a second one after clearing a little more land of weeds and vines.  Planted the finished bed with Serrano chilies (raised from seed), also okra and sunflowers. Planted a couple hills of Butterbush squash. 
Hotter than yesterday (33 C) and very humid. 

So far, no additional deer troubles.

Completed second raised bed yesterday, more okra, cayenne peppers, squash.

This evening I will gather some pine straw mulch from places where it shouldn't be (near house), place it in the walking areas around the raised beds.  I have some of that mulch reserved for when the plants are tall enough.  Probably plant some of my remaining 16 tomato plants that are not in the ground yet.

Finished transplanting the last of the tomatoes today, so I think I'm done planting.

I also made a small wall around the base of my little magnolia tree and brought in some soil to replace some that eroded away.

After that, relaxed, had a hamburger dinner with my wife and boys, then walked to watch fireworks.

It has been hot, hot, hot, and dry, dry, dry lately.  So, my work in the plot is mostly about keeping the tomatoes, squash, peppers, okra and herbs watered as best I can.  The tomatoes and peppers seem to be the happiest.  Squash and okra are doing ok, but I planted late, time will tell if they yield anything.  Herbs are mostly doing fine, in pots, though I don't think I will try growing dill in a pot again (I wanted some fresh dill for pickled okra).
