Sunburnt pumpkins

There's a strong, hot breeze coming off the desert today. My poor pumpkins are getting sunburnt. Unfortunately the pumpkins were infected with mildew, which is slowly killing off the leaves.. and so we have sunburnt pumpkins. Something to keep an eye out for next year. So... it was a good thing I planted 4 vines, or we'd have barely any pumpkins! We're putting soaker hoses on the garden beds, so hopefully that will help avoid mildew in future. Not for the faint-hearted, this gardening business!

And now, in this 37degC heat at only half past 3, we're having a little sun shower! Go figure!
