A good week for us because of the rain and just because it was a nice week. On Friday, August 12, in the previous week we had that drought breaker rain of about 31 mm. Then on Monday the 15th about 8 mm of rain came, followed by 9 mm on Tuesday and a further 1 mm on the Wednesday. On Sunday morning early we had less than 1 mm of rain but it was still useful. This makes things a lot easier for us but the workload is the same. Vegetables and weeds are now growing and looking a lot better. The pastures quickly changed from brown to a green haze to substantial growth by the grasses and other plants.
We have been able to do more seeding and transplants. Until now it has been too hot and too dry to get things to germinate and to grow. We are hoping that the somewhat cooler temperatures will prevail now and that all the seeding that we have done will be successful. Already some of what we have seeded has come up and is growing well. We have chosen the veggies to seed keeping in mind their days to maturity, the dwindling daylight length and the likely temperatures when the vegetable will be reaching maturity.
So this week it is a very short blog. But I do have several photos.
