    It IS sad about downtown. I hate what the handful of bad actors have done in terms of needing to have windows boarded up. Such a vast majority of the protestors are peaceful, it’s so infuriating when a few people give it all a bad name. And it’s so so so depressing seeing all the trash and unhoused people. I just don’t know how we get through this.

    I draped a sheet over my blueberry plants and it helped a LOT. They’re against a chain link fence so I used rubber bands to attach them at the top, and put small hand weights on the bottom to keep that fierce hot wind from blowing the shade away. Next time I might go even further and mist the sheet so it’s damp, but I’m just happy my poor blueberries made it!

      I agree with you. I honestly don’t see how this will be fixed.

      That’s a great idea for your plants! I will do that during the next heatwave. I just hope it never gets that hot again…
