Mid Feb: Fog

The morning greeted us with a thick fog.

The garden was barely visible from the roadside.

Neighbouring paddocks obscured.

After the fog lifted the council workers delivered 50 used railway sleepers.

These will be used for edging around the garden in non-food growing areas. The sleepers have been tested as safe for garden use but we prefer to keep them away from our food.

During a late evening stroll around the garden
we found Pumpkins flowering

and Baby Yellow Pear Tomatoes ripe!

The ant are busy building up the soil around their holes...
...maybe we have more rain on it's way???

Not tonight with that clear sky at sunset!

Feb Week One: Rain!

On February 5th the remnants of Ex Tropical Cyclone Yasi
produced enough moisture to drop 63mm of rain,
bringing the total for the week to 125mm!!!

Puddling was evident at PCG...

...but 3 days later on the 8th there was no sign of the wet

and the sky was clear!
