Are you ready for the heat *|HTML:FNAME|*?

Summer is right around the corner! And depending on where you live, the next few months may either be a nice warm and comfortable season or hotter than that habanero pepper you've been growing. Whatever the season brings, you'll likely need to make a few adjustments to accommodate your flock and protect your thriving veggies. Make sure to follow our recommendations below to help you welcome in the summer season! 

Have a Slant-Roof Greenhouse™? Make sure to have the right shade cloth in stock to battle the concentration of UV rays coming in. Choose between our 40% polypropylene weaved cloth for your finer flowers or 60% for your sensitive leafy lettuces! 

Have Raised Garden Beds? If you haven't already mulched your garden beds for weed prevention, you're going to want to once summer rolls in. Mulching is going to prevent your veggies from drying out quicker in the heat and leave you with little to no impact on that water bill. Talking about water, try scheduling your daily watering time in the early morning to keep your plants hydrated and happy as they soak up the summer sun. 

Have a flock? As we've mentioned before, your flock can be very cold hardy, but when it comes to the heat, your birds may need even more attention! That's why we've compiled three tips to help battle the summer heat for your flock in our blog post "How to keep chickens cool in the summer heat"

Happy Summer Farming!

Monthly Trivia Answer

Do you know how hot it has to be to cook an egg on the sidewalk? 
According to the Library of Congress, "it's possible, but not probable. A sidewalk would need to be 158F to cook. Sidewalks might only get up to 145°F. Once you crack the egg onto the sidewalk, the egg cools the sidewalk slightly. The pavement of any kind is a poor conductor of heat, so lacking an additional heat source from below or from the side, the egg will not cook evenly."

What pepper is considered the hottest in the world?
While it’s currently awaiting verification from the Guinness World Records committee, the Pepper X Scoville units are said to have topped the hotness scale at 3,180,000; that’s almost one million Scoville units hotter than the Carolina Reaper! [Titlemax]
