The rain has long gone, even had to put the sprinklers on the veg patch last night. But the soil is nice & soft so I've cleared some beds, added well rotted horse manure & started planting seeds. More long beans, turnip & a lettuce patch- many diffrent sorts all together as they dont heart at this time of year & I will pick as for mesclun. In pots I have started more corn, 4 types of tomatoes, Thai Pink, Tigerella, large cherry & an unknown Giant Tree Tomato, the origianl from a Burkes Backyard mag, supposed to do well in the winter but mine fruited in October in CQ!
Really lucky that 900mm of rain did not rot all that was growing, I have Thai Pink ripening, capsicum & eggplant soon, how can I tell when the eggplant are ready to pick?? Most of the carrots have rotted but found some for lunch
Gardening is always a battle, but its great to be able to produce at least some of one's food without all the chemicals - so much better for us.
