Dry, dry and dry again

Still no rain in view. Yesterday the garden had to be soaked by hand, luckily it stayed overcast so evaporation would have been minimal. I watered everything, took nearly 45 minutes, by hand, even the onions and potatoes (with Bordeaux Mixture for safety's sake). Surprisingly, many crops are still doing well, and the squash and peppers and tomatoes seem to actually like this hot spell. The raspberries are starting to form fruit! Exceptionally early. And the gooseberries are fruiting well, however they must soon be netted as the berries ripen.

We are still eating strawberries and peas and there are 4 artichokes which will be ready in a week or two.
Pictures soon.
