The hot weather didn't seem to affect the potatoes, but the plants in the garden on the other side of the shed (which is under shadecloth) were a bit sad looking on Saturday afternoon. I went around with the watering can and gave them all a good water and they perked up.
These snowpeas seem to be doing well
I planted the snowpeas pictured at the end of May and they have taken this long to produce!! Live and learn, I suppose, next year I will plant them earlier, I don't actually think they will grow too well once we start getting really hot days. I have been amazed at the difference using shadecloth over the vegetables has made. We bought a sliding bistro awning to put up on the shadecloth support, as the current shadecloth is fixed in place, and I think in winter the plants will need all the sun they can get, so I will be able to slide it back and forth as required.
the view from the workroom
I spent part of the weekend, tidying out the cupboard in my workroom and listening to "The Little White Horse" by Elizabeth Goudge. I got the audiobook from the library on Saturday, it is certainly different listening to a book being read instead of reading it yourself. You have to pay attention to what is being said, but it is a nice way to get some work done in a relaxing sort of way.
