And after the rain, everything was soaked of course. The garden has had such a good drink only because I have raised beds, but as every gardener would say, I wish it would have rained all day. There are still strict water restrictions in Melton and the ground is bone dry. Dig down a couple of centimetres and it is hard as rock, and I don’t see the situation changing during Spring either. Well at least the water tank is full for Summer, and I have plenty of shade cloth now to shade the tomatoes during the very hot weather. No cooked tomatoes for us on the vine this year thank you very much. I would rather do my cooking in the kitchen or on the BBQ! I believe it is called “adapting to Climate Change”, which is something I wish we didn’t have to do, and shouldn’t have to if we all got off our collective bums and did something about it. That means the entire developed and growing developing nations in the world! Get on with it, please. Only a few months to Copenhagen, so do the right thing, please world leaders and leave the bullshit behind.
I have already planted out lots of seeds for spring and made my own seed raising mix on Wednesday afternoon, but I will write about that tomorrow and about our little trip. It may take some time to get there as I can only sit for about 20 minutes before I get sore and the trip is about and hour each way, but I promised Kim that I would stick it out. We haven’t been out for what seems like ages. Should be good fun.
