Hello dear friends,
Last week we had some cooler weather. This had not happened in such a long time.
One day of coolness, then it was gone...
On this day the skies looked like we could get some rain, so I thought uncovering the veggies would be a good idea so the plants could get a decent drink of life giving water.
It. did. not. happen.
I think I may have scared the rain away!
The veggies appreciated the coolness and the bit of sunshine they had the next day.
Silver beet growing with some chives in there somewhere.
This bath has a mixture of strawberries (looking a bit worse for wear from the heat), celery and beetroot.
The new zucchini plants are doing well.
I have picked three of these already.
More silver beet.
I am going to make rhubarb and ginger jam.
I am not sure what is going on with the cucumbers.
I found this lighter coloured one hidden among the vines. I am thinking they are actually meant to be this colour!
The heat has taken its toll on the tomato bushes but they still producing fruit.
I have planted some more young seedlings to keep us going for the rest of the season.
These have been picked, some eaten, some drying.
They are almost ready.
Must be nice and cool in there.
Another beautiful sunset.
Could this week will be the last we see of the hot weather for a while? I hope so.
It reached 43C today (109.4F), but has now cooled down to 39C. I am praying for some rain.
I hope you are all having a lovely week.
