Poor tomato’s are not happy after their wind and rain battering yesterday. Very sad to see them lolloping all over the place. More wind and rain today so probably isn’t worth mounting a rescue mission just yet.
Its blowing a gale and hosing down here today! I will try not to look, and deal with the carnage once it all clears up. common for this time of year though, and Nov was awesome so shouldn't complain. will spend some time in the greenhouse retying the tomatoes, lots of little green blobs forming yay! Planted out a courgette seedling yesterday that came up at least 6 weeks after I sowed it , just shows you should never give up!
The rain was far less today...and long dry spells. Time to pick scallopini, zucchini, tomatoes, and lots of lettuce/mesclun and herbs. Will do some trimming and tying tomorrow if the rain stays away.
Lots and lots of rain and warmth...garden is going nuts again, no chance to weed or tidy up. Bonus, don't have to water!
Local WA farmer has been contaminated by GM Canola and Minister blames certifier not the pathetic 5m strip between farms for protection!
This has made me so mad that I have written to the minister and published the letter on the web see my blog for details!Farmer Suffers GM Losses
Please read support if you can by sharing links for story etc (DIgg Stumble etc)
Fed the cucumbers milk...let's hope it helps, cos there are HEAPS of babies on the vines. Picked zucchini and some scallopini and another tomato (heirloom, Black from Tula). Finished stripping the lemon balm, after drying, and have a large bag ready for teas when I can no longer use fresh. Tickled some new spuds up, enough for dinner for a few nights. Potted chocolate mint and basil mint after the cuttings rooted in water. Picked currants and the last of my loganberries (new plant last year...has done well). Fed up with the birds stripping the goji of it's leaves, so have had to cover that too. I doubt I'll get fruit off it this year now. Oh well...will have to have the leaves ourselves, in salads.
Picked the last of the Apricots today! We have managed to get nearly 50 this year - the fly got half after a rain storm moved some of the fruit bags etc. It is all learning!
picked loads of wild plums today, got some wine on the got, loads in the drier and others in the dridge and yet more waiting for me to decide what to do with them
Thanks Hester ...will do that tomorrow...good idea
