The vegetables, that is. Tomatoes are sunburnt, the leaves of a lot of plants are crispy.
One thing that was a bit uplifting, though: the soil underneath all that mulch is not rock hard, but friable and slightly moist. Woohooo! All that hard work building up the soil and mulching everything has paid off. I can't change what happens above the ground, though.
42C yesterday up here. 43C forecast for today. 44C in the city! Yuk!
Anyway. Stay cool, people! Take care of yourselves! Don't forget to keep up the fluids! Everyone, everywhere - all the best! Those in the midst of this scorcher, those experiencing flooding and storms (unimaginable as it seems to me at the moment). All the best to everyone.
