    We have enjoyed giving this service free of charge however ongoing increasing financial costs of running this service is making it increasingly difficult. Up until now we have resisted advertising as a means of a revenue stream to help run this forum but it has become inevitable that extra revenue is required to run this forum.

    We have introduced a donate button to help offset the cost of running this forum. It is completely voluntary, but if you would like to donate, all donations would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Murray..

    Hi fellows

    In the peak of summer I've been experiencing ambient temperature between 30 to 40 degrees Celsius for over 4 months. This is not forgiving for my AP setup running for 10 months already. Despite the fact that I've got a UV 40% white shade cloth, the heat is so severe that the tomatoes plants just burnt out, the lettuce is taking ages to grow, in fact most of the leafy green veggies aren't doing well. Defying the heat are the pawpaw trees which are fruiting well, the strawberry plants doing pretty fine, the spinach is thriving.

    What are you recommendation for such weather?

    Thanks in advance
    Danny
