It's Too Darn Hot!
It's too darn hot! 30 degrees and not a cloud in the sky to hide the sun. The gardeners try their best to hide from it, but shade is scarce. The vegetable patch and heeling in area for spare plants need weeding and the box hedge need cutting.
At the end of the day, after a lot of water drinking, sun cream applying, sweating and hard work, our goal is achieved. Will someone please turn the thermostat down, it's too darn hot!
