EDITED: And what do you know – thunder, rain and a bit drop in the temps ;)
At least not this year here in Sweden where summer didn’t appear until a bit into July. My poor seedlings suffered inside for too long and I thought the grape vine was dead, but with new soil, fertilizer and bigger pots they all was brought back to life and look how they look today.From left: some gigantic chili plants. I put several together in a large growing bucket and they are thriving. Now I know that they do not fare well in orderary pots…Then tomato plants and the two surviving cucumber ones. In the background a bougainvillea that loves it’s new pals.
The cucumbers, some chilies in smaller pots, a gorgeous bird cage that I lined with moss and planted small climbers and some fuchsias in. Two buckets with tomatoes and the grape vine that I think have 4-5 bunches of grapes on it. And it has like the cuces, started to reach for the stars :)
On top a wisteria and a brugmansia that should have gone outside some weeks ago, but with thumps round +30C, gardening work is the last thing on my mind. One more chili and two fuchsias planted in a tin watering can. On the floor a pot with callas, they are grey for cutting and put in a vase.
After the morning watering round I glanced at the thermometer and suddenly understood why it was so hot in there – + 41,5C!!! I have now put the fan on….
In this heat there is only one thing to do and guess if I’m grateful for it) – dippedidip into the pool and this (bad pic taken with cell) is our own hot day haven :) Here on the top floor it is warmer that one can stand – so of for a swim.
