BB, you know all about growing in the heat then. Not much breeze here when it heats up, unfortunately. Just still, baking heat. The only saving grace is that it's pretty clear heat.
In Sydney, while not usually as hot in terms of numbers, the oppressive humidity was the killer. The saving grace, though, was that I could grow toms for about nine months a year. I used to grow Brandywine Sudduth as a purely autumn crop, after the worst of the humidity had passed. It won't set fruit in heat and humidity.
