The garden at the Manor has really suffered over the last month particularly. Up until then, things were producing quite well. Then it got hot.... really hot...
The silverbeet in the little dogs' yard suffered first. They've been removed now. The pumpkins and zuchinnis in the front garden are pretty much cactus. It's hot, dry and unprotected out there. I lost a few things (eggplant and lettuce mostly) in the big girls' yard. I'm having to shift to perpetual spinach until the heat goes away.
So what's going well? My Rozies' damn passionfruit (which of course I don't really eat) are producing heaps of fruit but the vines look a bit sad in the middle. Herbs seem to love it at the moment, as does the spinach. Oh, and I am about to get a good crop of cucumbers (which of course I don't really eat either).
Last week I thought it was finally cooling down, so I planted snow peas. I think that may have been a mistake because it was damn hot again today.
Anyway, I did a video walk through if anyone is interested (or can't sleep).
