Wow! My lot are just above the seed leave stage.

Seems as if your move is bearing fruit (pardon the un)

Up here in the wooly North I always said those South of me were " A coat warmer than us" in your case it seems more like a "sheepskin coat"!  :sunny:

We are always a couple of months ahead here but you have to bear in mind that we do have a dead spell in the heat of summer.  So many things will not work in 40c plus so you have to learn new ways and timings.  Toms, peppers and the like will go through with a lot of watering but lettuce, coriander etc will just bolt, celery will flop over, chard will burn to a crisp and it's a struggle to keep beans, beets, squash etc going.  Cabbages and the like will refuse to grow so we replant again at the end of August and get second crops through the winter\early spring..

The aubergine emoji is similarly rude.
