I have to do lots of pruning & weeding and some more mulching today. Mad dogs & englishmen garden in hot weather - not quite sure which one of those I am though. I do garden in the heat - stupid I know, but I am obsessive in all that I do - so that explains it. I put the hat on, old tee shirt & shorts and my boots and off I go. Perspiring like a fool. But I take lots of breaks, drink lots of water and garden mostly in the shade. When I get too hot, I go inside for a bit to cool down.
Calidore at Calidore's garden has a great post about gardening in the heat - she gardens after dinner. Which is a wonderful idea but those mozzies near drive me insane. I did read once that the colour blue attracts mozzies but I can wear red, yellow or even lime green and they are attracted to me whatever colour I wear.
My gardenias are in full flower now and the perfume is amazing ! The tomatoes are starting to bear fruit. I have enough zucchini to take a truckload to the market and I have been eating my beans for a few weeks now ! I just spied yesterday, quite a few passionfruit on my vines too - that vine is growing so well * it must be the chook manure. It is actually growing over my chook pen.
