I went to the garden today at about 3 PM. It was extremely hot outside, so I knew that the plants needed a lot of water because of the current heat wave. I noticed that the plants in the shade appear to be larger and leafier than the ones in the sun, and we originally believed the plants receiving more sunlight were not growing as well. However, we found out that the plants in the shade are weaker and therefore need to grow more leaves and stretch to receive the same amount of sunlight. Also, like other people mentioned, we should probably space the plants out because some of them appear to be growing too close to each other. Since the next few days are going to be blazing hot, it is important that we water the garden a little bit more than in the previous days.

    yes, good point about the watering. The next few days are going to be important…and unfortunately, it is a bad idea to transplant in a heat wave (they get extra fragile when they are moved, and the heat is just one trauma too many…). So we may have to thin a bit before it is all over, too…
