Surviving the heat

Melbourne had its hottest day in 5 years on Friday. It reached 44.5 in my suburb and it felt every degree of that. I was a bit worried about my plants but seasonal family commitments meant I had no time to do anything about protecting them. Fortunately other than a bit of damage to the youngest leaves on one Tommy Toe tomato plant and some of the raspberries, everything emerged unscathed.

I think the combination of a good layer of mulch and morning watering helped avert anything more serious.

    How about a picture of your crop?
    my biggest so far is nearly 500gm which isnt too big for some people.
    I had a bumper crop of blueberries this year – I have 7 plants
    My 4 blood orange trees are going well too (i’m northern suburbs too!)
