I can't do it - work outdoors when it's hot I mean - I retreat indoors and wait for it to cool off. So instead I get up early - this morning I dug over the pumpkin patch in readiness for the plants to go in this evening, and planted french beans and another row of peas. I waited till it cooled off this evening and did the rounds, watering all my new plantings. I emptied a whole dustbin of saved water - in some places the ground was cracking like a desert. Talk about one extreme to the other.
