Triple-digit heat hits Fresno

Triple-digit heat hits Fresno

Ugh. It’s here. The triple-digit heat of summer I mean.

Usually it’s a bit later that it arrives, but summer has arrived early this year. Guess I’ll have to work smart by getting out early to garden to miss the midday heat.

Hope you’re staying cooler than we are…please enjoy your weekend.

Until next time,
