Sad droopy leaves in hot weather

Sad droopy leaves in hot weather

Hi, gardeners! Over the last few days here in Toronto, it's been incredibly sunny, hot and humid, over 30 degrees Celsius, with the humidity index rising above 40. Walking outside feels like swimming in soup. Yuck. I don't think the plants on my west-facing balcony like this very much either. I have some nasturtiums, climbing bean vines, some miscellaneous herbs and flowers, and red bell peppers. Every afternoon evening the leaves look droopy - especially the peppers. Overnight they all perk up again, but they look so sad and wilted later in the day! What should I do? Is there a particular time of day I should water them, like early in the morning? Should I be watering them a lot more in this weather? (I normally water them once a day, usually when I come home in the evening because that's when I have time to tend to them, and they don't seem too dried out.) Should I spray the leaves or anything? Or is this just what happens to some plants in hot humid weather? As you can tell, I'm new to growing things, and I feel sorry for my poor peppers. Thanks in advance for any advice! Eva
