It has been over thirty centigrade for what seems like an eternity and am learning how to garden in the heat.
Have put in a few dwarf bean seeds hoping they will grow, but no more new plantings till the weather cools.
Kale and basil still do well, eat them each night. The pepper plants are also fruitful.
Eating some beans from the old dwarf beans and turmeric, perennial lettuces and tomato plants continue to grow.
This water melon is larger each day.
My use of larger plants to shade newer or more vulneraable plantings is helping keep my garden alive, but my vegetable patch is against a fence which intensifies the heat. I have been given these wonderful palms and am considering planting them beside the fence to break the fence's heat and extending the garden patch out using the no dig method.
You certainly need to be in a garden `all seasons' to learn how to grow your food.
