I can’t believe how hot it is today! It’s after 9 pm and it’s 28 Celsius with a humidity factor that makes it feel like it’s 36 Celsius outside! Do you know how hot 36 C is? That’s 96.8 F.
Isn’t it autumn now? Am I not in a country that the rest of the world thinks is cold all the time?
It’s normal for it to be in the low 70’s or high 60’s during the day and cool to perhaps the low 50’s at this time of year in this area. That won’t be happening tonight. It’s supposed to be fairly warm for another day or two and then we’ll get back to normal seasonal temperatures.
Well … maybe my Tomatoes that I had to bring into our enclosed porch last week when the night time temps dropped to freezing last week will have a chance at continuing to grow. There’s several small to medium sized green tomatoes on the two plants that I brought into the porch. I’d love for them to ripen!
We got off to a slow start with our Tomatoes this year. I planted them too late and the strange “cool then hot plus not enough rain” summer we had didn’t help. We’ve only had one ripe full sized tomato so far and I love tomatoes.
I learned my lesson though. Next year I’m starting my tomatoes in March and planting them in mid-May if the weathers co-operating.
You know how much I love tomatoes? I can eat them like an apple. Yum.
