Low and behold the spoils of yesterday's Oh-My-God-The Sun's-Gonna-Kill-Them-Better-Pick-Em-Now Tomato Haul
One bowl full of Black Russians, A Green Zebra, and numerous red and yellow cherries. To be honest I got double this haul but my totally awesome best friend was over yesterday and took a similarly sized and varied haul home for her mother (her own tomato plants were 'defruited' by sneaky rats so I am glad to make her and her mother smile)
The forecast top of 38 degrees yesterday never appeared, though we did get to 35 degrees late in the day and the night didn't cool down too much. Slight relief. But as it was already 25.7 around 9am this morning, the revised top of 41 degrees Celcius should appear, by oh, say around lunchtime. And looks like it is not going anywhere fast Thing is they revised the temps again, so now the numbers of fear read
41, 43, 40, 40 (that's an extra day of scarily searing sunny heat)
Apart from moving to Antarctica has anyone got any garden (or personal) survival tips?!?!
