For three days I weeded, watered, and planted in that blazing heat. Oddly, my 9-year-old daughter wanted to be with me (she created a cute little fairy garden...maybe I'll share images of that soon). Don't worry, we drank lots of water and stayed in the shade as much as possible (my daughter even begged me to purchase a small kiddie pool to stand in).
We accomplished a lot, felt good about it, plus had really nice showers at the end of the day. I can't believe the allure of gardening.
