Fay called this our 'mini Christmas tree' (lettuce)
I wonder how many beans I will harvest from this plant

What the heat did to the veg

 Got back from my holiday from Batesman Bay NSW to the scorching heat of Melbourne (with temperature in the 40's).  Look how 'naked' the plants look and the leaves were literally burnt.

Luckily, most beans were ok.  I harvested 2 kg of them.

 Same with the zucchini - only the leaves were burnt, the zucchini were protected by the leaves.
