And here's the heat damage

Veggies got fried yesterday in our 43 C temps. The poor celery, melons and zucchinis look like they were hit with a nuclear device, well I suppose they were in a sense. I don't think the melons are going to set any more fruit now with the coming hot weather so I will have to be thankful for the fruit that does ripen. I have to say that covering all the larger fruits with cardboard did the job and none were hit with sunburn.

We are having a reprieve of only 30 degrees today before the temperature starts up again. I hate hot weather.

On a lighter note, my caigua have finelly began to set fruit. I will post a couple of pictures when I harvest the first ones.
