Last Friday we did not get our inch of rain and we're expecting a very unusual (weather warnings sent out) heat wave of 32C at the end of this week. Nighttime temperatures are in the double digits celsius, which is rare for us. So far this has been a wet spring and a low fire season, they've only just put on our burn bans.

Same scene on this coast too!   We were under a heat warning for three days, broke at least one daily temp record at 30C, and humidex got up to 37C.  The warning is over but the heat is continuing, although thankfully some cloud has moved in and we should get some showers as well.   It's been insanely hot by local standards since middle of June after a really dreary cold "spring". Insanely hot for us is day after day of temperatures above 20C without anything cooler.  In July it bumped to mostly mid 20's or above.   We had one major rainfall in July - 43 mm in one go after about six weeks of drought.   I don't recall ever having a summer like this one - and we thought last year was hot.

We just got some rain finally, something like 1.5" (!!!!!) overnight and through till early afternoon. It's only 10C right now but last weekend was so warm, up near 30C, and next week is supposed to be the same. Assuming the already-full lake doesn't flood the next town downstream, and assuming we get our promised heat within the next couple days, I'm quite content with this year's weather (knock on wood).

I am so sorry to hear that Adrian.  Really hope this weather pattern changes soon.
We've been stuck in a hot pattern as well, but nothing like the severity in Europe.  We had one really good rain of 43mm in July, which made up for the dryness to some extent.  And I am really fortunate to have a deep well which is never short of water.
I truly hope you get rain soon and enough to get by.

Steph s,i think that 43mm for jully is also under the normal.
Its cloudy and windy this evening but it always not rain.
The previsions are change and they wait a few rains mid-august maybe a thunderstorm this night.

It's been in the 90's here much of the time since June with maybe 2" of rain since May.

Adrian, I hope you get some relief soon.

Randy, that is really scanty rain as well.  And hot.
We broke another daily heat record today at 29.4 C with humidex 35 C.  This is very hot for us, it is pretty close to the same temperature inside the house and nowhere to retreat to a cool "room temperature", well the basement is a few degrees cooler. I doubled up the curtains to keep the sun from heating the inside even more.   I don't think I would survive those temperatures over 40 C as Adrian has been having in France.  And without water?  Pretty much impossible.
I've been watering every day here and I know all the wild and unwatered things are suffering with less.  What are you guys seeing with your crops?  What do you grow that can manage with very little water?
My perennial herb garden is basically rain fed and doesn't usually get any care or watering and is fine.  But the stress this year got really obvious in July and I did actually a mercy watering a few days before that good rain we had.

Steph S,  I have a very small garden with tomatoes, peppers, okra, and squash.  The tomatoes are doing fine but their area is near a large tree and they get shade for part of the day.  Watering once or twice a week seems to be enough.  The peppers are producing but need water two or three times a week.  I planted 10 squash plants and 3 are doing well, the rest are dying.  I water them the same time as peppers.  The okra seem really stunted but I think it was from the cool nights in late May.  There are a few places in my garden with cracks a few inches deep in the soil.

Steph s,fortunately the 100mm (4') of june was permit to have a good vegetative grow.
The great problem is the rains of jully and august and the low rains of this winter.
Since january it miss 84mm of rain compared at the normal of the season.
For the squashs all the plants are alive but they don't again all give fruits officially fecondated.At the first placement they was sow in three times: mid april x2, begining may x4 (spontaneus plants) and mid may x4 for have always at least  a plant with males flowers for fecondated the others plants.
I think that 8/10 plants are give fruits fecondated.We have currently12 fruits frcondated at the first placement. for 10 plants for this moment They can give fruits up to mid-september for have viable seeds.They have the time.

At a other placement we have put our cucurbita maxima under a cherry tree and we have a correct yield.

The tomatos are more early than the last year.

The pepers are globaly weaks and give very small fruits.

Melon and watermelons and cucumbers look goods.

The strawberrys are not burned at shadow.

That is really interesting and I'm glad to know that some things are holding up or even doing better. 
I see both of you are making use of shade from trees, and I've been thinking exactly the same regarding peas. The row at Mom's I did a rough support with sticks and twine just under the edge of a small apple tree's branches.  The tall ones are now growing up into the tree and the shade has been a benefit.
