Well we survived the heat wave. It is a tad cooler here today, but oh so humid
The remnants of Cyclone Christine have arrived!
38C (100.4F) today.
We are expecting strong winds but not much rain...
just a little bit of rain would keep me and my garden happy J
The black clouds are building.
Millie found a cool spot to lay yesterday.
The temperature reached 46.3C (115F) which was better than the 50 degrees we were expecting.
Mind you some areas north of us did get that hot!
Here is the garden this morning...
Most of it is still alive...
I did have to water several times during the day yesterday though.
We definitely couldn't have gone away anywhere.
Dwarf beans and rock melon.
The first one for the season.
This struggles in the heat and now it has aphids on it.
More sweet potato, with basil.
The last of the tomatoes.
Still picking the tiny toms.
Watermelon, beetroot and potatoes.
Very sad looking zucchini plants,
they are not liking this weather at all.
Too hot for tomatoes!
This is the Queensland Blue variety.
Rhubarb and celery.
Bright butternut flower.
We will soon have figs.
Next seasons oranges.
Too hot and dry for grapes,
They really struggle.
We should probably stop trying to grow these as we never get any fruit from them.
These nectarines will be ready around the middle of January.
Wishing everyone a great day! Hope you are all enjoying the holiday break J
