July has brought heat and a need to water.
I still have plants to get out in pots and into the ground.
But they will wilt in the heat, so they are in the shade and waiting for a cloudy day.
And our heat is not as bad as the heat down south. We are 25ºC to low 30ºC this week.

I'm having trouble keeping my small pots watered, even in the shade!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

We only get the occasional thunder shower, which does not give enough moisture for the plants.
