27 Degrees

23 Aug

That was our maximum temperature in Sydney today.

Most of my seeds are up- such as the tomatoes.

And the cucumber

And the chillies and celery that Liz sent me

My overwintered Tobago Seasoning chilli is setting new fruit

The apples are in full flower

And the leafy greens are going to seed.

Like many unseasonably hot days, we are getting a cracker of a thunderstorm now.

    What a cracker of a day it was. And with the rain too the once empty water tank is now 1/4 full. Look at those apple flowers!

    We had storms too – but it wasn’t nearly as hot preceeding ours, our high was only 18 but I was very grateful for that as its been pretty cold here this winter.

      Oh dear – I’m still pretty cold at 18 degrees. I’m very grateful for our mild winter and excited by the el niño event that seems to be shaping up. I don’t want soggy tomatoes 2 years in a row!

    Beautiful seedlings. I have to start some for the fall garden, but I might just direct seed them. It takes so much less time and energy to do it that way. If only it would be cool enough outside for them.

      Direct seeding would be easier- I put some kohlrabi in a few weeks ago and forgot about them until yesterday when I discovered them again. I normally raise them separately so I can push my growing space to the limit.

    Sounds like a lovely warm day to me, we’ve only had a few such days all summer. How exciting to have tomato and pepper seedlings starting and summer (a real summer) to look forward to!

      And yet you’ve harvested so many capers Michelle! Gives me hope that it is possible in our climate too!

    Yes it was a beautiful warm spring like day. And a cracker storm with some gratefully received rain. Great looking seedlings. Ours are all popping up too.
