Today is predicted to be 30 degrees. Summer is on it's way when we have to pull out the $1.00 per metre curtain fabric from Spotlight. Used this method last year during the high heat and didn't lose one vegetable plant. We are late planting, having been away, but the vegies are thriving. Must buy some more straw to cover the beds.
Have planted, tomatoes, baby spinach, strawberries, rhubarb, cucumbers, zucchinis, corn, celery, basil, spring onions, eggplant and beans. Have plenty of room left in the beds and once we harvest the last of the carrots and parsnips will plant more tomatoes.
