2012 already it's May. Starting anew for Autumn

Category: general growing conditions | Posted: Thu May 24, 2012 3:42 am

Hi again.

It's been a long hot summer, and now it's started raining again. Yay. The ground while still not too wet, has lost that dry crunch underfoot.

Suddenly it's green across the paddocks surrounding our house, and it feels like Autumn. Freezing in the mornings almost. 3 degrees this morning! ouch.

I know it gets a lot colder in other places around the world, but I've found that I don't do cold very well. Time to rug up, and hopefully the heater will go in soon, or we'll end up frozen all day and night. Can't wait.

Well, the veggie patch. Hmm. I've sorely neglected it for so long, but it seems very forgiving. I ripped everything up that had died, chucked it to the chooks to pore over, and up comes new seedlings. My plan for this year, let it come. I'm just going to plant in and around what comes up from seed dropped last year, and see how that goes. I can't believe how many have germinated.

The guinea fowl are great, however they seem as interested in the vegetable seedlings growing as I am, so bird netting has gone up all over the place.

I've lost the charger for my fance new camera, so no pics. (ohh!) I know, but I cant's seem to fine another charger, and I don't want to just buy another camera. That would be a waste.

One thing I'm trying to locate are some Black carrot seeds. Only there doesn't seem to be any here. Western Australia does have a lot of carrots, but I want Black ones. Any ideas?
