Effects of prolonged heat
This is my first year growing and needless to say, I've learned so much every step of the way (that unfortunately I have to wait 9 months before putting into practice). So now it's time for another lesson... Much of the country is experiencing extreme heat right now. I feel lucky to be in southeastern NY where temperatures have stayed under 100.
What are the effects of severe, prolonged heat on plants like tomatoes? What can be done to mitigate them? Should plants be moved to the shade at some point (or even indoors)? What if that's not possible?
Looking forward to your responses.
