Today is one of those days in North Queensland where you get out the shower, dry yourself and your still wet. You walk from the car to your front door and your dripping with sweat. You don’t even think about drinking coffee because it’s just too hot. In fact, you think twice about even going outside. At 8am this morning it was already 30 degrees. The overnight temperature didn’t drop below 27 degrees. Right now outside it’s 32 degrees but it feels a lot hotter than that. When I checked on the internet, it said the current temperature was 32 degrees but the apparent temperature (or feels like temperature) is 34 degrees.
These hot temperatures make it difficult to get out into the garden because it’s just too hot. On the upside though, the heat and humidity has been great for my sweat potatoes who have only been in the ground for four weeks but are growing beautifully.
