When we arrived on the farm on Friday it was a warm, but comfortable 27 - 28oC (82 - 83oF).
RMan got started on fitting the new belt to the mower, whilst I started on de-rocking and forking / raking through a new area in the shade cloth veggie patch. Englishman knew of, and offered the assistance of a local labourer he uses, which, after all the effort of the first bed, I gratefully, and willingly, accepted. But he was only due to work on Saturday.
Why didn't we do more while we could...!

This range is almost like hopping on a plane in the southern hemisphere during a heatwave and arriving in Europe 12 hours later to their autumn / winter temps!
Heat makes me wilt - the cooler weather immediately rejuvenates me.
Thank goodness RMan is making eco-friendly provisions to ease the discomfort on the farm... (sorry, you'll have to wait until later in the week for info on that :) )
