Extreme heat this summer burned mine - and most everybody I know - up
. It wasn't lack of water , I installed a drip system hooked to my well
and kept things well watered . I've got about 1600 sf fenced off to keep
the deer out . About a quarter of that is dedicated to the bees , a
quarter for blackberry and blueberries . The rest gets rotated with
tomatoes , beans , peppers , etc . Except the strawberry patch in the
corner .

Maybe you got some bad seeds?

I think about it every year and then consider that it means war all
summer with deer, raccoons, and maybe even the damn skunks.

The Ozone layer is far more depleted than the "authorities" are telling
the public. It's not just high temperature that is killing the stuff
you attempt to harvest in your garden -- it's also harmful UV radiation.
The only indication the "authorities" are giving people is the UV
index that one can observe on the Weather Channel / Weather Underground.

How come the market has fresh produce? Is this what it means to be a
good consumer?

Odds of that are vanishingly small , a wide range of seeds from
several sources . There were a lot of other people who had the same
results I got . The young (relatively speaking) woman who runs the local
co-op's garden center had the same results . Most of my seeds are saved
from years past and are acclimated to our area . We don't usually get
temps at/near/over 100°F for weeks on end ...

A combination of 1" chicken wire and electric fencing does well for
me . I use 24" wide chicken wire with 6" turned flat to the ground on
the outside . That's topped with 3 strands of electric fencing wire (on
5 foot steel T posts). Bottom strand is just a couple of inches above
the chicken wire . Keeps bears out of the apiary too .

I was addressing your lamenting that the heat "this summer" burned your
plantings. UV radiation is another form of heat.
